We visited a local school during recess yesterday. Of course, many of the kids were playing soccer. But there were also a large number of bosy playing with tops. They´d start wrapping a string around them from the tip up and then throw them down so the string would unwind and spin them. It was really cool to watch. Then, they would pick them up and have them spin in their hands or use the string to loop around the tips and toss them in the air.
There were also a lot of people just running around screaming. It seemed like there was less supervision and fewer overprotective adults around and I thought it was refreshing to see kids being kids and learning to interact on their own.
