An Adventure Play Documentary
A new documentary film about Adventure Play.
When an area of the playground has been neglected for a period of time, playworkers know it's time to move in with a "modification."
Loose parts can trigger the "inner control freak" in adults. The impulse to "tidy" is not acted upon at The Land.
As children's competence with fire grows, they tend to create their "own little fires" outside of the designated fire pit.
