Abstract

The amount of activity and the type of play on playgrounds possessing equipment and on playgrounds lacking equipment were compared for six artistic and five non-artistic children, aged five to eight. Modifications were used of (1) the Barker technique of recording child's movements from place to place, and (2) the Goodenough technique of repeated short samples. The results indicate that artistic children differ primarily from the non-artistic in that they devote more time to play materials and are consequently less active physically and less social. Where play materials are absent the differences tend to disappear.
