As part of this Taking Nature to the Streets project, we are developing a new idea called ‘Play in a Box’. The concept is to have a box filled with a fantastic array of simple items to inspire imaginative, outdoor play. The box needs to be small enough to be easily carried around by someone involved in supporting play activities such as street parties, Playday events or simply playing out.
We have a few ideas about what to put in our play box, but need your help to make it really exciting and innovative. So… if you were on a desert island, and our play box washed up on the shore, what would you want to find inside?
To get you started, here’s what the London Play team came up with:
- Bat and ball
- Old sheets
- Bucket and spade
- Butterfly net
We’re looking forward to hearing all your wonderful ideas – please use the comment box below to tell us about them!
