Melbourne, VIC

Did you know that the average Australian child spends less time outside than a maximum security prisoner? Yep. And that in developing countries, quality early childhood play can increase adult earnings by over 40 per cent? Playground Ideas promotes the importance of play on children’s development and wellbeing, and its power to bring communities out of poverty. We’ve created a website full of free resources that allow anyone, anywhere to produce creative, stimulating play spaces for kids using locally found, recycled materials. To date, we’ve helped close to one million children access play all over the globe.
