This workshop will present a story of how a 3-5 program struggled with how to handle weapon play, and the evolution of our policies and principles around this play. It details the process we took and our use of reflective practice in handling this complex issue. Pedagogical documentation on the weapon play in our program and educator reflections on this area are included in the presentation. Participants will have the opportunity to discuss concerns and ideas around weapon play in their own practice, and reflect on this together.
