The philosophy of clowns?

Today Manne the Clown came to visit... he was curious about how we use philosophy with children... and we were keen to learn more about communication without words...
how mime, expression etc can be evolved more in the preschool as a communication tool...

We got to watch a show... where I took LOADS of photos and could see the questions, the interpretations and the philosophy within the clown performance... afterwards we learned clown tricks as he interacted with us without is clown face on...

In the afternoon we put clown faces on and entertained passers-by on the square with the tricks we had been learning in the morning...

I have been working and sorting out the photographs... and just noticed that I hadn't writtena blog yet... and what with this blogg100 challenge... something is to be posted...

So I am posting that I am in the process of writing a post... and Clownen Mannes Little Book of Philosophy... hopefully a great resource for the children (and us) at Filosofiska to erflect on our experience and to use to delve into more questions and queries...
