Superheroes and popular culture can have tremendous power to motivate and inspire young children, but we can often feel challenged to find positive and creative ways to support and develop this play in our settings. Participants will have the chance to discuss these issues, and leave with a host of ideas to implement immediately!
- Consider why children are fascinated by these themes, and how to use them to best advantage.
- Discuss how to plan and provide for high-energy play and extend learning through physical development.
- Consider different approaches to weapon play – and how to respond to this in your particular setting, with an example superhero/weapon play policy to share.
