Dreaming and Drawing your playscape Makeover! Together we look in depth at playscape designs from around the world and share planning and construction tips. We then guide participants in thinking about their community for low-cost materials, resources, and labor help. And finally everybody gets to draw their dream playscape + plan steps to make it a reality.
If you are looking for a way to jumpstart your own playscape project or inspire groups of people at a conference or gathering we can help. Our workshops are geared to your needs whether they are a quick 1 hour introduction to the world of natural playscapes, a dream and design workshop, or a roll-up-your-sleeves hands-on build workshop.
Playing with loose natural materials. We love leading Fairy Hut Building – yeah! – as well as bigger constructions like fort/den/natural sculpture building. Lots of hands-on fun that also inspires participants to think about how easy it can be to bring loose natural materials to their own children for fairy hut building and more.
As a group we “swarm” to a nearby childcare center and help them build natural playscape features. We work ahead of time to help the center plan and have materials ready. Then on the big day we swarm on site and get a ton of work done. Transformations right before our eyes! Feels great to help a group realize some playscape dreams, amazing for participants to see how much work can get done in a short amount of time, and inspiring folks to plan their own swarm builds for their spaces.
Pop-up adventure play! Together we set up a whole play day outside with loose natural materials + other play props and invite local kids + families to get into it! Putting our ideas right into action and fun.
