Risky Play - Brainasium

Telus Spark’s Brainasium (Christina Ryan / Calgary Herald)

Calgary Youth Physiotherapy believes that children not only learn through instruction but through movement experience and exposure to environments where play is undirected.

Undirected play experiences lead to more creativity on the child’s part. By playing in less directed environments, children learn to assess situations in their environment, determine options, evaluate risks, and learn to interact with that environment in a playful and safe manner.

Allowing your child to discover ways to interact with a simple ball, sheet, cardboard box, log, hillside, or stick can lead to hours of enjoyment and fun for your child! My kids played outside with an old sheet in the wind for 2 hours, and came back in happy, exhausted, and full of knowledge about the wind, their bodies, and how to play creatively!

Bring the fun back into play! Read about and visit the Telus Spark Brainasium, and then consider how you can improve the “risky play” in your home and community environment.
