Playful Actions as a Sign of Togetherness in Day Care Centres.
Hannikainen, Maritta
International Journal of Early Years Education, v9 n2 p125-34 Jun 2001
Examined observational data on daily activities in a day care center to articulate different manifestations of playful actions and analyze their role in creating and maintaining togetherness. Found that, in their play, children were subjects and active agents in creating their own culture, realized throughout the day by means of humor, fantasy, dramatic gestures, joking with language, and exaggeration.
