This chapter has tried to unpack central characteristics of children’s fantasy play and on this background discuss more broadly what playing children can investigate and learn about. In the process of playing fantasy games, the children continuously and in collaboration with each other combine input and ideas from three spheres of reality, and they can do so in new and sometimes even for themselves surprising ways. Thus, fantasy play has a format which invites the exploration of engaging topics in very varied ways.

These processes, I recognize as social identities, and they are of great concern to the children – paramount in the games they play and the rules they play by. Playing Games with Rules Turning to the second part of this chapter, the investigation of children’s playing within the model of spheres of reality as related to and involving social identities is further explored in relation to negotiation of rules in children’s soccer playing.

The child’s general attitude to itself and to others is presumably one of the factors which have particular importance for its willingness to enter into socially positive and negative relations. It also determines what consequences he or she will have for the child if, in play, it performs acts which are really harmful to others. e. the wish to make friends again, which indicates whether the aggressive actions will become part of a negative circle. For children who generally have good relations with other children, individual aggressive acts have little or no significance in their relation with other children.
