Wild Rumpus, week 1, year 2: Mmmmm..... Rumpus-y!

What a great kick off to this summer's Wild Rumpus series on the west side!  This year, the Wild Rumpus is taking place twice a week (two different locations) for twice the fun.  When the amazing Holly posts about the east side Rumpus, I'll be sure to link to it here!

Although we have ordered some of the official AnjiPlay materials (yay!) they haven't arrived yet, so once again, we're kicking off the Wild Rumpus season with some non-standard Anji Play materials.

I love the deep engagement with chalk here:
 This crew spent hours building a fort using fabric, ropes and clamps on the existing playground equipment.
 The sheets and fabric also made beautiful dress-up options:
 (lots more after the jump!)

AnjiPlay Webinar

Want to watch the webinar about AnjiPlay?  Here's a recording!

Please note: "Anji Play,” refers to a specific philosophy and comprehensive approach to early education developed by Ms. Cheng Xueqin in Anji County, China. I use the term "Anji Play" to describe my programming and throughout this blog with the explicit permission of Ms. Cheng because our programming has been developed as part of a close collaborative relationship with her and her team of Anji Play educators. If you are interested in learning more about how you can bring Anji Play to your community, please visit www.anjiplay.com
