Loose Parts Pop-Up Play Adventure

July 24, 2017 @ 1:30 pm - 4:00 pm

We’re looking for 150 kids aged 4 – 12 for a Loose Parts Pop-Up Play Adventure. It’s all taking place on July 24 between 1:30 and 4 pm at the Halifax South Common between Bell Road and Cogswell Street.

This event is being led by the UK’s Pop-Up Adventure Play who have organized similar community play happenings in the UK, the US, Australia and Asia. Join them for the first play stop on their cross-Canada tour!

Loose parts play is about sparking innovation and creativity in our young people using readily available materials like cardboard boxes, tape, milk crates, sticks, tires, jump ropes, diggers and shells for the kids to have fun with. The Halifax Regional School Board has successfully introduced loose parts play through the EXCEL program. The outcomes? As limitless as a child’s imagination!

Participants are encouraged to bring water, sunscreen and comfortable shoes. It’s also best if you don’t mind getting dirty! There is no cost for participation. Parents and caregivers must remain on site.
