Construction Play Building a trap
- Construction Game and Physical Play
A game where children build something with naturally occuring items that they call a trap.
At School 10
Props: Pine tree, branch of tree
The girls dug a hole and inserted a branch they found in the playground into this. Using the sandy soil around this branch they built it up to support the branch. Then they placed pine needles onto the branch. They were also digging another hole into which they were going to insert a piece of wood off a tree that they had found.
On following up on this game, the branch had been disposed of and there was a different structure and diggings in the same area.
