This is a project that has three phases. Firstly making your background, then building your park and finally…playing in your park. Great for preschoolers who still enjoy knocking blocks all over the place.


Material

  • Tub blocks or foam squares
  • 1 Pre-made collage background
  • 1+ Finger skateboards or cars

Method

  1. Make a collage background. We wanted to do a more industrial theme but my girls decided to colour things in pink and orange.
  2. In front of your collage background take a tub of blocks and set up an obstacle style course with ramps and steps.
  3. If you have other items such as little plastic bins, cardboard box buildings or bottle caps you can add those too. We also use hot wheels cars.

  • This is brilliant. The possibilities are endless as to the different ‘parks’ and themes that could be created. A zoo would be a good one or a Show – with ferris wheel, animals, woodchopping etc. Or a beach day out. So so many :) I love this.
