Pop-Up Adventure Play in the Central District June 1st 10am-5pm free to families!

Pop-Up Adventure Play has been described as a “flash mob play date”

Best characterized as child-directed play where children of all ages play with an abundance of loose parts (e.g. cardboard boxes, fabric, tape, string, etc.) with the support of playmakers who have been trained in community-based playwork by Team Pop-Up Adventure Play.

This event is free to families, sponsored by Play=PeaceSeattle Pop-up Adventure Play and Hopscotch CD. Adults are welcome to play with their kids or chat with other parents and playmakers while enjoying the 2 mile long hopscotch route.  We will be in front of Center Stone  722 18th Ave Seattle

 Pop-Up Adventure Play creates a place where children of all ages and abilities have the opportunity to recognize, explore, and express their natural play instincts with peers, parents, family members, and a community of supportive adults. A Pop-Up Adventure Playground or “Pop-Up” is a free, public celebration of child-directed play, “play that evolves when children choose what to play and make up their own rules for how to play – and translate it in ways that are easily ‘gettable’. We help make play easy and fun… as it should be.” – Anna Housley Juster, an early childhood consultant with popupadventureplay.org. While the children enjoy hours of play, parents and caregivers can join in or sit back and relax.
