Extracts from Stuff and Nonsense: Magical Moments of Everyday Playfulness

Magical Moments of Everyday Playfulness
Charlotte Derry

This chapter is taken from the anthology Stuff and Nonsense, Thinking Differently about Children’s Play. Inspired by the work of the researcher, trainer and writer Stuart Lester, the anthology focuses on the themes of play in many contexts, from open-air venues such as a sculpture park and a zoo, to museums and playwork settings.

The book offers a philosophical perspective to prompt thinking as well as personal and professional reflections.

The resource here is a single pdf chapter, and the full volume of 19 chapters can be purchased here.
