On Thursday I heard a giggles echoing across the playground. I wasn't sure about the game I was seeing at first. Once I observed for a few minutes I realized it was full of cooperation.
I love seeing the kids organize games on their own, by chance. I think this game started because there was not enough room for everyone to "swing." I was impressed by the give and take that was going on between a group of kids that aren't usually a unit. This game continued for at least fifteen minutes, with them switching places without even discussing it.
Check out these videos to see it in action.
Did you notice how in this video the kids are not even actually bumping the kids in back?
I'm sure this game will return in the future.
We also had a lot of fun playing on a frozen puddle that we found.
