Outlines of some significant play sequences

This section provides examples of particular play sequences involving certain activities. The illustrations show the identifiable stages of development in how children typically investigate, manipulate and use play objects. All children do appear to pass through broad stages of development in their spontaneous play. However, this is dependent on appropriate opportunities being available to them, adult support and encouragement, and cultural practices. The ages selected are used as examples and in reality often vary.
