Come play in the Honeymyrtle garden and discover how to create an inexpensive, sustainable, fun, adventurous environment that both children and adults want to spend time in. Cook in the mud kitchen, sail off in the pirate ship, build out of loose parts, shape clay creatures, weave from nature... No matter the size of your garden, you can build a natural playspace.
Discover how a creating a 'children's garden' with open-ended, natural resources provides hours of imaginative play and how being outside in nature and without ‘toys’ develops children’s cooperation, proprioception and motor skills in readiness for school. Loose parts allow children to build their own environment, take risks and gain confidence. Ridding your playspace of plastic means less mess, less breakages and more creativity!
