The purpose of this study is to show or point out the play habits of the elementary school children between the ages of six and twelve years. It aims to show how different play materials affect age levels in regard to diversity of interest in materials. It aims to stimulate greater interest in the appreciation of play of the elementary school child.
To study the play habits and discover the differences in the use of play materials of children between the ages of six and twelve years, the following plan was used: 1. To observe the children of the elementary school in free play situation. The element of interference of other children as a hindrance in a child's free choice of materials was taken into consideration. 2. To record the time which each child spent in certain games or with play materials during: a given period of time (3 months). Then a summary of games played and materials used was made. An observation of the use to which the play materials were put by the child was also made.
