Outdoor play


Recommended Posts



We are trying to develop our outdoor play area. We currently have the usual ride on toys, slide, balls, basketball hoop.


What do your children enjoy doing most outside?


What could you not do without outside?

What could you not do without outside? - We wouldnt be able to use our entire bodies in an uninterrupted space (interrupted by four walls and a roof) to express and extend our thoughts into a physical space that only exists within the elements of the nature itself. Outside provides a space that is limitless and has endless possibilities of what we can learn, be and become.

I hope that helps! Good luck and let us know how it goes! Pics would be great!

real house bricks! Our love them for building low level walls with sand and delivering them from end of the garden to another in wheelbarrows. A builder parent donated them.
