Discovering Waldorf :: Propositions of Play

I know we talk about the importance of play a lot here on Discovering Waldorf and here it is again.  I thought this article had a very interesting take on the benefits of play throughout the ages. I particularly loved these two sentences …

“Play, then, is about process, not product.  It has no goal other than itself.”

Discovering Waldorf is a weekly series of articles written by ‘everyday’ Waldorf families. The contributors to this series share their ‘real-life’ insights and inspirations on all kinds of Waldorf topics. This series is not meant to be Waldorf philosophy in its purest form, but rather a snapshot of how we can all incorporate Waldorf ideas into our lives to help nurture and encourage the magic that is in our children. If you have a topic you wish to learn more about (or want to share) on Discovering Waldorf, send me an email at

Blessings and magic,
