About the Book

Encouraging and facilitating ways to deepen play into your everyday, our favourite flow friends take you on an adventure to bring magic play into your day. Simple reminders throughout the day can assist young people to build essential skills in wellbeing and brain health. Through play and expression, children can naturally self-regulate. Self-regulation is key in finding ‘a sense of centre’ and is essential in experiencing everyday wellbeing. Through weaving narrative and colour The Way of Play invites children (big and small) to consider ways play connects mindfulness and wellbeing into the day to day. In a world of excessive sensory exposure our bodies can tense up, our breathing can change and this effects how we experience the world around us. Children can lead us back to vibrant wellbeing if we allow them to lead through play. The Way of Play inspires children to keep the magic alive.
