Play is what children and young people do when they follow their own ideas and interests, in their own way and for their own reasons
play encompasses children's behaviour which is freely chosen, personally directed and intrinsically motivated. It is performed for no external goal or reward, and is a fundamental and integral part of healthy development - not only for individual children, but also for the society in which they live.
(Video spontaneous dance sessions in play time totally initiated and managed by children).
Freely chosen means that children themselves choose when,
how and what to play. As such it is not part of a set programme and does not
have any steps that need to be completed.
Personally directed means children themselves decide
the rules and roles they take within their play.
Intrinsically motivated means that play is undertaken for
its own sake, and not performed for any reward, certificate or status.
