All children have a right to play. This includes superhero play, sometimes weapon play and shocking themes like shooting storm troopers! The aim of the workshop is to facilitate a discussion on superhero play. Knowledge is power, and hope that after completing this workshop you will have a clear idea on how to deal with superhero play.
- Understand what children mean when they use superhero play
- Discuss possible ways to manage and guide this type of play
- Investigate the possibilities that superhero play can bring to the centre
- Explore policies/guiding and caring philosophies we have on superhero play

This workshop will provide information and strategies for early childhood educators and caregivers about how to support young children with rough and tumble play, superhero play, fighting and weapon play.
