ONOFRE, Pedro Soares. As actividades expressivas e criativas... são experiências científicas . Aná. Psicológica [online]. 1998, vol.16, n.4, pp.615-620. ISSN 0870-8231.

The author, observing that it is in a Play that the child begins to make sense of things, and that playing is the children´s way of living and learning, became aware that studying Play Behavior and Play is to study cultural life of children. The Adult and the School, by playing just as a transitory stage, harden and impose Pedagogy in the name of discipline and rentability. It is urgent that the Adult recovers the ability to Play and realize that children live by playing, and that is a fact as genetic as the blood running on their veins! Like the Adult, the Child creates, collects, elaborates, symbolizes and breathes life… Children cultivate themselves by being in motion. Maybe one does not have to learn but to accomplish; … One has to build the art of living and fulfill it in a time and place well lived in, using the Pedagogy of initiative and creativity; for, as Bruno Ciara observes «there is a very intimate relationship between the expressive and creative activity and a scientific experiment»

Keywords : Play and creativity; scientific experiment.
