Wabi Sabi Posted September 7, 2012 Share Posted September 7, 2012 Today our homeschooling group met for park day. There were maybe 20ish kids there ranging from toddlers up to about 13 years old. The thing that I love most about them? Every week the kids come up with some elaborate pretend game to play and everyone who wants to play is included regardless of age. Today they all played for nearly three full hours and didn't need a thing from us adults. They were totally fine entertaining and organizing themselves. My almost 8 year old boy clearly looks up to the older preteen boys and just adores them. You can tell that they truly don't care that he's so much younger. Age just doesn't matter. I could be wrong, but I would imagine that that kind of play across such a wide age range just isn't a regular occurrence amongst traditionally schooled kids, but within our group it's something that I see happen every single week. I love it! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
