Under 70-talet fanns det flera bygglekar runt om i Västerås. Med ett gratis medlemskap fick man vara där för att under uppsikt av personalen bygga och leka, men andra aktiviteter fanns också på schemat, som korvgrillning, fester, tygfärgning och mycket mer. Vissa bygglekar hade till och med bondgårdsdjur. Den mesta verksamheten skedde utomhus men det fanns också tillgång till lokaler....
When George Thomas was eight he walked everywhere. It was 1926 and his parents were unable to afford the fare for a tram, let alone the cost of a bike and he regularly walked six miles to his favourite fishing haunt without adult supervision
I have had a few daycare kids whose parents did not teach them how to climb stairs. Ever. The thinking was that stairs were dangerous. Of course they are dangerous. That's why, if my daycare kids have the use of their legs, they need to learn to climb them. As soon as a kid learns to walk, we head straight to the stairs.
Welcome to ""the Land,"" a Welsh adventure playground that allows children to climb trees, light fires, and construct things using hammers and saws. Filmmaker Erin Davis captures the kids in action in her documentary of the same name. Staffed by adult supervisors called ""playworkers,"" these spaces are becoming increasing popular throughout the rest of the United Kingdom and Europe. Proponents of this type of environment believe kids are empowered when they learn to manage risks on their own.

Extensive training is the basis for giving teachers the autonomy to work the way they want. The result is a highly prized profession and an education system always near the top in international rankings
Two Norwegian psychologists think that modern playgrounds are for wimps. Instead of short climbing walls, there should be towering monkey bars. Instead of plastic crawl tubes, there should be tall, steep slides. And balance beams. And rope swings. The rationale is that the more we shield children from potential scrapes and sprained ankles, the more unprepared they'll be for real risk as adults, and the less aware they'll be of their surroundings. Leif Kennair and Ellen Sandseter's ideas have won the support of playground experts on both sides of the Atlantic; one company, Landscape Structures, offers a 10-foot-high climbing wall that twists like a Möbius strip.
