Workyards: Playgrounds Planned for Adventure.
Rudolph, Nancy
The playgrounds pictured and discussed in this book are called Workyards. They are places where children play--in any way they elect. Limitations are set only by the space that is available and by the always changing and abundant supply of materials: lumber, nails, tools, old machinery, rope, sinks, stoves, pickets from an old fence, barrels, and planks. These are places where children can play as they will: they can be noisy and wild or quiet and contemplative. A play leader is always there to show how things can be done (not what should be done). A Workyard welcomes children of all ages during the day and into the evening. Older children and adults are encouraged to develop activities at the Workyard and are assisted by the play leader in planning and scheduling them. Workyards are additions to the play life of children and hubs of community activity. (Author/MLF)
