An invitation to play

planes

How fun are these? Landor Sydney’s invitations for AGDA fold up into paper planes!

It’s a great example of how design can create permission to play. The design is still a flat sheet of paper, but the little lines indicating the folds invite you to transform it into something else.

  1. Thanks for the sharing of play ideas and the prompts. The paper airplanes are delightful. I’ve done a few adult recess sessions. I did one at an Adult Day Care. Some of the men were not engaged in play at all — until I brought out the paper airplanes. Then they were flying high! They were connecting to their spirit.

    The Strong National Museum of Play, http://www.museumofplay.org , has a chart “The Elements of Play”. Fascinating and so real, regardless of our age.

    You’ve once again reminded me of the joys of play. I think I shall skip today. For when I skip, laughter and light-heartedness is sure to follow.

    March 6 – Creating a Toy Box in the book Simple Abundance, A Daybook of Comfort and Joy suggests we do just that — create our own toy box.

    Thanks for sharing your blog. I feel the joy in each reading.

    Have you played today?

    The Gratitude Sprinkler,
