Our essay is about children's exercise of power, oppression or domination in games or when playing on school grounds with one and other. We thought it would be interesting to look into how children in preschool and up to the fifth grade use power acts respective power plays in leisure-time. During four days we visited two different after-school center and carried out observations of children during the school day and later inside the recreation centers during leisure activities. In order to analyze our empirical material in relation to power, we have used Magnus Hörnqvist (2012) interpretation of Michel Foucault's theory of power - Another Foucault. We have also used Åsa Bartholdsson (2008) thesis about The regular exercise of power regime – about normality and power in school. The result is that from what we could tell from the children's interaction with each other is that self-relational activities is the exercise of power which leads to recreate standards organized around influence. Which is a power that is both of means of control and of resistance that is particularly useful for understanding children's participation. It constructs the individuals’ strengths where the differences is converted to privileges and positions in a hierarchical order in the schoolyard.
