Fun is only nat­u­ral

A NA­TURE Pass­port was launched in Kwinana on Satur­day.

Kwinana MLA Roger Cook joined hun­dreds of chil­dren to cel­e­brate the launch at the Chil­dren’s Week Fam­ily Pic­nic Day at Kwinana Ad­ven­ture Play­ground.

The Na­ture Play Day of­fered fam­i­lies a chance to get chil­dren out­side and muck­ing around.

Ac­tiv­i­ties were de­signed to be self­guided and en­cour­aged chil­dren to lead the way. They in­cluded el­e­ments of cre­ativ­ity, prob­lem solv­ing, ad­ven­ture and fun.

By down­load­ing the Na­ture Play WA App free via iTunes or Google Play, fam­i­lies were able to see the ac­tiv­i­ties on of­fer and where they were found. The app also al­lows fam­i­lies to be a part of a real-life trea­sure hunt, with clues to find hid­den mark­ers, which lead to the next piece of the puz­zle, all within the Na­ture Play WA app.

An area was also set aside for loose parts play, gum­nut birds, out­door games, na­ture craft and mud pie kitchens.
