Joining a playgroup

Observing the activity, deciding when to join and asking to join the group

To join a playgroup, children can for instance stand near a group and watch the activity, make a positive comment about the game and then ask to join the group.

Your friends are playing a ball game that you want to join.

Consider waiting until its a good time to join the group (not when they’re right in the middle of the game). Approach the group and ask nicely, don’t steal the ball; play according to the rules.
