Playdoh on the driveway


We live at the end of a cul-de-sac where lots of other children live. Our children spend a lot of after-school hours playing out with them – riding bikes, roller-skating, playing elaborate make-believe games. Today it’s a Saturday. They wanted to all play with our seven year old’s new playdoh ice-cream factory but I can’t really fit all the street’s kids in our house and some are very young. So I set them up in the sunshine outside on the driveway with a vinyl tablecloth, the playdoh and all the playdoh toys. I would have been pretty uptight about doing such a thing a few years ago – unschooling has allowed me to feel much happier and joyful about finding ways to help them all do this. There are more kids out there playing than are shown in the picture and one of those in the picture is younger than two and speaks no English.
