"My Outdoor Classroom" Launched!

Amazing mazes, nature moustaches, and more!

Our pals over at Outdoor Classroom Day just released 7 activities on Nature Passport - the free app designed by Nature Play WA and IslandWood to get kids and families playing, exploring, and learning outdoors. Play through the “My Outdoor Classroom” pack of activities transform your kids’ sedentary screen time into active, outdoors time! Learn more and download the free app here.

We visited All Saints' College last week to play through five of the activities with a very special group of kids. What followed was an a morning of creative, messy, nature play fun. No classroom required!


Cardboard Box Street

You’ve heard of thinking outside the box, well now you can make a whole cardboard box street! Once it’s complete, get trading with your school mates.

Dig a Finger Deep Hole

An outdoor geography lesson! Go on a journey of discovery, hone your observation skills and let your imagination go wild. A passion for geology starts here!

Drawing a Maze

Drawing a maze is easy to do at the drop of a hat. Instead of putting pen to paper, put chalk to playground and get lost drawing your own labyrinth.

Sponge Bullseye

Find an open space in your neighbourhood… it’s time for a game of sponge bullseye. After all, everyone loves an excuse to get wet and messy outside.

Make a Moustache

A silly but profound activity that will get everyone thinking about materials and help build an appreciation of the possibilities around you.

Download the FREE Nature Passport App

Ready to play through these activities and more with your class or family? You can download the Nature Passport app for free on both the App Store and Google Play Store.
