Heya.

Little Day Out is a curated list of fun things to do for kids in Sydney. We save you time by selecting just six weekend activities we think are the best of what's on

Centennial Park - Wild Play for Families, 10am to 12pm, From $25

Centennial Park - Wild Play for Families, 10am to 12pm, From $25

There is a compelling and growing research argument that in a technologically changing world, children need play in nature now more than ever. However, this can be a daunting and challenging experience for parents and carers if they are unsure of how to manage their children who want to explore, take risks and be challenged in a natural learning environment.

Join our Wild Play expert for a workshop in the art of nature play. Areas covered will include:

  • Introduction to Wild Play, benefits and outcomes for nature based children and families

  • Managing safety whilst encouraging challenge and adventure

  • Enhancing and enabling curiosity, creativity and imagination in the outdoors

  • Understanding nature (plant, animal ID and some basic natural history)

For all parents and carers who wish to get their children outside but aren’t quite sure how to negotiate and make the most of a nature play experience, this is the workshop for you.
