Arbor Day Festival April 12th at Central Park!!
Jeremiah was there for fort making!! Lots of twigs and fabric, string and wood was played with and kids and adults alike had a blast creating all sorts of things. There was a viral push for bow and arrows using just string and 2 sticks, but kids pushed the boundaries of the concept. See some of the amazing creations below.
Here’s more information on the festival too:
Come join us next year!
On March 8th and 9th we held a TWO DAY Pop-up Adventure Playground in Newhall! Day one was at Newhall Park and day two at A Little Patch of Earth Preschool and it went smashingly! We were also lucky enough to have in our presence THREE playworkers from the UK’s Pop-up Adventure Play! Here are some pictures documenting the fun that was had and the creations that were made.
Here’s the post about the event:
A Little Patch of Earth and Jeremiah Dockray and Erica Larsen-Dockray, are hosting a FREE Pop-up Adventure Playground March 8th and 9th in Newhall, CA! The event is open to the public with the goal to awaken the child in every adult and to inspire the imagination in every young person.
A touring team of play workers from the UK’s Pop-Up Adventure Play (popupadventureplay.org
), will demonstrate how open ended, hands-on and self-directed play can create meaningful and vital experiences.
If you are a parent, education-professional, or anyone who would like to learn more about play and how to create your own meaningful environments, please checkout our workshops page
to attend one of two workshops before each free pop-up adventure event! The cost is only $20.00, but like play, the return is immeasurable.
Come on out and PLAY, too!
Here is the flyer for our upcoming Pop-up Adventure Playground hosted by A Little Patch of Earth Preschool and Jeremiah and Erica Dockray.
