Clean or Dirty Play

Two articles appeared on my news feed yesterday both relating to children’s play and accompanied by photographs. The sequential nature of the articles probably emphasised the differences but I couldn’t help but be struck by the images attached to the articles.  I”m sure one is a catalogue image so I’m likely being unkind by saying I was struck by the sterile nature of the image, its bright colours and very clean sand, grass, staged children and clothes, while, the other, in contrast was taken on an overcast day with the neutral colours of natural objects and children engrossed in play. Both articles were advocating for children and play but in such contrasting ways and its probably not hard to guess where I see more fun and learning going on.
