A natural playground

My children are lucky enough to go to a school where outdoor learning is promoted. Each week the children enjoy time in the natural play area, located next to the school. The area is created with natural materials found in the area and students as well as teachers have helped to develop and build the area. In the area children enjoy climbing, games, swinging, balancing, campfires, wood carving, hanging up water catchers and bird houses, eating their daily fruit snack, drinking hot chocolate and much more.

I decided to take a trip there with my daughters for a closer look and what great fun we had. 20130709_141511Part of the area, meeting point in the centre, and tables with benches
