Okay, let us show you something that is quite different from what we usually find in our homes and is away from the main topic in this blog, but we think that you will find it interesting to see. If you visit Canberra, Australia, you may want to take your kids to the National Arboretum since visiting the National Arboretum is fun and educational. Besides that, it now has an interesting playground for kids that has been opened for public since June 22.
The concept is to creatively engage children with the beauty of trees and foster life-long connections to the remarkable surrounding environment. The very interesting seed-like shape comes as a challenge to the traditional concept of play environment. The giant acorn cubby houses float in the sky combined with the enormous Banksia cones nestled on the forest floor.
Play is vital tool for children to develop social and educational skill, and this particular playground is expected as a tool to form relationship with the environments, the landscape, climate and its surrounding context.
So if you have a plan to take your family to Canberra, visiting this playground will be an exciting experience for you and your kids. There are tons of fun games to play with, playing with the fishing net and the bird’s nest, making your kids feel that they are on the highest position in that majestic, open landscape. And if, in a very rare occasion you get bored with the amazing structure in that playground, sitting among native grasses with their red, yellow, orange and white flowers can be very relaxing.
