Create your own playground! Be resourceful with the materials you have, and the things that you find in nature. Birdwings Forest School Directors Jen and Narell take you on a tour of their Adventure Playground in their outdoor site and show you the potential for rich and dynamic play with just a few resources. We use ropes, tools, fabric and wood to create a playful wonderland for our Little Birdwings program.

program on the Gold Coast. We work with children from birth to
