If you haven't already, why not pop on over to Play Outside! to browse through the hundreds of outdoor play and learning tips and ideas on offer.

Or better yet, I'd love you to submit your own outdoor play post to add to the growing collection.

It is through your contributions that Play Outside!  will grow to become a valuable resource for families and educators alike.

So tell me, what have you been playing outside this week?


  1. Loving finding outdoor play activities for these Autumn/almost Winter days!!

    1. Yay! So happy you are finding it a useful resource Rebekah. I'm hoping there will be some submissions soon for autumn ideas we can add in.

  2. What is really sad is that so many school yards that I have worked in don't even a fraction of the space and options that you have here. There are so many schools that have just some concrete with a few riding toys outdoors for the kids. What a joy to be able to play in your environments.
