This article describes a new measurement tool which could be used to study the acceptability of playwork interventions from the perspective of children: the Day Reconstruction Method – Child version (DRM-C). It explores acceptability by comparing a specific intervention, in terms of how enjoyable and rewarding children find it, to other daily activities. The measure was pilot-tested on 18 children taking part in a healthy lifestyle intervention for children at risk of obesity-related health disorders to determine if it could measure how acceptable the programme was to those taking part, as well as their feelings and thoughts towards particular activities within the programme. Limitations and how these can be overcome in future research are discussed.

More about this publication?
  • The Journal of Playwork Practice aims to advance playwork research and practice by providing the first ever interdisciplinary platform for the publication and dissemination of scholarship relevant to playwork practice. The Journal of Playwork Practice bridges the playwork theory-practice divide by facilitating practitioner access to research relevant to their practice, and enables researchers interested in 'playwork' to access a hitherto inaccessible field of practice and its literature.

    The Journal of Playwork Practice was published by Policy Press from 2014 to 2017, and will return with its new publisher as the International Journal of Playwork Practice in 2019. Further information is available at:
