Superhero play holds fascination for children as they explore their world in creative and physical ways, linking into popular interests. This can sometimes be a challenging issue to respond to in early years settings but this resource will provide positive ideas to engage children in purposeful play. The wide ranging activities support language, literacy and creative skills across the EYFS.

Many of the ideas can be developed both indoors and outside, allowing children to express their experiences and feelings on a bigger scale throughout the setting. They may use superhero play to explore identity, issues around power and control, for conflict resolution and problem-solving scenarios. All of this feeds into their active learning and thinking skills. 59 pages, A4.

    “I found the lists of resources particularly helpful – it helped me remember that open ended resources are better than prescribed things that can only be used in one way – Anni is adamant that children make whatever ‘guns’ they require – premade plastic toys from home are not allowed – again we are looking to support childrens’ creativity and imagination.
    At the end of the book Anni provides an example of a ‘policy’ that can be adapted to suit your own setting – it is clear and well laid out and will help your staff team and your parents understand the thinking behind allowing this kind of play.
    I recommend this book for any setting, for newly qualified staff it will be a stepping stone for their own ideas. For more established staff, it will help them see things afresh and will help them re-evaluate what they are doing with the children in their care, and why.”
