School Yard Experience over Time:

Childrens’ Games

by Pieter Bruegel

 

We all have experiences from games in our school yards. Do you remember these games? And who you played with? To arrive into a new context as a parent, how can we do to help to open this new context?

Start a conversation about school yards, beginning with this painting from the 16th century. This to give us a frame for the coming talk and how different interpretations of the painting can develop.
