DO YOU WANNA PLAY WITH ME?

TO PLAY IS THE VERB THAT SHOWS EXCELLENCE FOR CHILDREN, AND OFTEN LET ADULTS REVIVE THE GREAT FEELINGS SLUMBERING. TO PLAY IS EQUAL TO A DUTY, IS ENCOURAGING TALENT AND BUILD PARALLEL LIVES. AND CONSIDERING THAT MAY FOR US IS THE TEENS & KIDS ISSUE, HERE’S ADDRESSED TO PARENTS AND CHILDREN’S FRIENDS A SELECTION OF GAMES, HAND MADE OR USING NATURAL MATERIALS BECAUSE THERE IS ALWAYS A GOOD OPPORTUNITY TO THINK ABOUT A GIFT THAT NOT IS SIMPLY AN HOBBY

Dolls, puppets, string skipping, memory games and ropes generating harmony. Stories to invent, media to socialize, sources of emotional and behavioral clarity. If you are a child watching yourself playing, you can see things from the outside coming form the inside. The approach to the objects of the fun is also magnifying glass about who you are and how you feel.

If the task of the game is not intended to occupy the time, otherwise empty, but leads, among other possibilities, to make the active and represent scenes of everyday life, you can reflected, at least partly, in the technical Waldorf, where importance is givento  objects made of natural materials.

Let’s take for example the ideal friend of every child: the doll. You have dolls in plastic, some with expressions defined and firm, able to interpret the same, identical role. And then there are other, hand made, grin face, able to provide more freedom in expressing their feelings and experiences in developing their own. She is the companion of adventures, with us hand by the hand, and not that object just to dress and coat. They also have a soul, and this is because they have been made “living” by the love of those who create them and that each of them shines through at least one piece of mind of the child that is given.

Mirror of thought, adventurers in two. To play is the child’s job and it does not by the will of others but by its inner necessity. In doing so it also happens that he idealize the adult and what he likes, for example, to accompany him in the household and in the kitchen, where he creates without artifice.

With that mind open, the engine of creative energy, and the place still clean from all ugliness, a child has no limits to transform any object in countless other objects. To give more lives to those who can have only have one.
