To promote children's possibilities to experience citizenship in pedagogical practice, we assume that participation is essential. An overall aim of this paper is to problematize the concept of participation. From our point of view the idea of participation is related to a child perspective, or rather a child's perspective. Therefore we also want to problematize these concepts and argue for an important difference between them. The research question is: How can children's participation be understood in different activities in a preschool context?
