Children’s play reflects our new and changing world. It can bring to light changes in technology or in how we live. Here’s a great example…
We have some little run bikes for the children to ride at preschool and a gas pump as well. The children like stopping for gas at the pretend gas station.
One day, the gas pump was not out. It was left behind in the shed, forgotten. Or so I thought. As they were riding around, I heard a child say to his friend,
“We don’t need gas, we’re electric!”
I love this. They could be doing a car commercial. It makes me want an electric car now even if its just so I can never have to stop at a gas station again!
