Creating a Nature Play Space
Learn to create nature play spaces in your centre or community.
This one-day Creating Nature Play Spaces workshop will provide you with the tools to undertake the process of transforming your outdoor space to a nature play space.
This workshop will be held the day before (and at the same venue as) our Nature Play Symposium 2017 - Just For The Fun Of It!. On-site accommodation is available for those interested in attending both.
The symposium will explore the degree of fun and freedom in our children’s lives and the importance of developing an intrinsic love for outdoor play in our children, in order to achieve a well-balanced, healthy outdoor childhood. You can read more about the symposium and accommodation options here.
What to expect:
- Discussions about the concepts of nature play
- Community engagement actions
- Risk benefit analysis
- Practical administrative tasks
- How to move to design
- Construction of your space
- The day will also have practical and fun activities spread throughout.
Cost: $275 (inc GST)
