A Space to Play.
Gan (preschool) playground, Haifa, Israel, 2003. Because of the terrorist attacks in Israel during this time, it wasn't safe for children to play in the neighborhoods, parks or markets. I was amazed by the creativity of teachers finding ways to use materials and space.

Great photos, Amy. I love the decorated fence. It says, "You can cause us to protect ourselves, but you can't take away our joy."

Wonderful photos - I love seeing the cute kids and the bright colors. Love that maze made with bottles! I'm glad there was a safe play space for these kids.


Love the photos. And yes, I applaud the teachers' resourcefulness in providing a playing and enjoyable space for the children.

Thank you for sharing.

Nice photos, nice take on the theme.


I love the bottles!

Great take on space, Amy. Love the photos.

Great take on the theme. A fine example of creativity and resourcefulness of the teachers.

What a creative solution. The children can still use their energy to enjoy their smaller more secure world. Thanks for sharing.

Great photos! I agree, very creative way to provide a safe place for their children to continue to play outside. Cool maze!
