OUR COMMUNITY

Interested in developing plans for your own community adventure playground? Let us bring the play to you!

We recommended a pop-up play day to start. Schools, street fairs, community centers and public parks - all are great spaces to inject self-directed play. These events provide young people with the opportunity to use their imaginations to build and create through loose parts play. Supported by our playworkers, children will make their own decisions on how to use materials, space, and time. Our playworkers will work with you to introduce the concept of self-directed play to your community.

Our pop-ups utilize found and recycled materials, including cardboard boxes, wooden planks, pvc piping, fabric, markers, string, tape, and more. You gather materials (we’ll give you some suggestions) and we bring the skills to make it successful. For an additional fee, we can help source and transport materials.

Planning a street festival, block party or community celebration? Animate your event with a three hour pop-up! Our trained playworkers come to you and use your collected loose parts and recycled materials to introduce self-directed play to your children.

pop-ups in schools

We can bring the play to your classroom, school yard or gym with a pop-up for students and teachers. Our playworkers will work with your staff to determine the best location for this event. They will provide guidance to the staff and help develop a syllabus built around grade level needs.
