We have used qualitative methods, such as group interviews and participant observations with children between six and nine years old. Our results showed that games with rules and group playing were most common and that the constructed playgrounds were popular. Girls and boys played mostly separated but there were also an occurrence of gender mixed groups. Boys often played games which include physical activity while girls preferably played less intense and more verbal. The results showed that different kinds of housings did have an influence on what children played. Our results also showed that different terms of language were a natural element in children’s daily life. Language was not an important factor when children chose a playmate. (Less)
