2016: The Year the Rain Poured Upon and We Played More

Pop-up Adventure Playground @ Baghdad Street

06 Aug 2016


What an amazing event we had! All our dreams came true when children continued having fun even despite the rain. It was all about play, play and more play!

Thank you to Pop-Up Adventure Play for all your guidance and wisdom in the field of playwork and to Singapore Wellness Association for letting us run our first Pop-Up Adventure Playground on Baghdad Street. Playstreets is such a wonderful and important initiative and we hope we can continue to support it.

Pop-up Adventure Playground @ Clementi Woods

17 Sep 2016


We held a Pop-Up Adventure Playground at the Amphitheatre of Clementi Woods Park. Tucked away in the park, this space offered many play opportunities for the children between 9 months and 9 years old as over 100 people attended this pop-up. Children slid down the steep slopes on self-made cardboard slides, climbed trees, swung on tyre swings, cooked noodles in their dens and built rocket ships... as adults also engaged in their own play!


Thank you to Pop-Up Adventure Play for your continued guidance during our playworking journey. Thank you also to our volunteers Olivia Oh, Sheera Conway, Duyen Huynh and Hamish Winstanley for your tremendous help, as well as to Janee Monis Nigos for your wonderful photographs.

Pop-up Adventure Playground @ Tanderra

22 Oct 2016


This Pop-Up Adventure Playground was held at Tanderra, a boutique family members club at Dempsey Hill. Its beautiful heritage site offered an inspiring space and plenty of play opportunities for the children, who along with their parents showed up in droves! An estimated 300-strong happy crowd turned up to tinker with loose parts, roll tyres, slide down cardboard slides, build box forts, and play with whatever they liked, however they wished as the adults sat back and watched the play unfold!


We would like to record our appreciation to Pop-Up Adventure Play for their wonderful support and guidance, to Anjuli and the entire Tanderra team, thank you so much for this opportunity for us to come together and work hand in hand in making this celebration of child-directed play happen, and to all our volunteers - Ana, Eugenia, Hamish, Jacintha, Jiahui, Masturah, Olivia, Sheera, Sourabh and Voja, our heartfelt thanks and gratitude for your immense efforts and for always going that extra mile.


A special mention goes to Kenn Delbridge for his incredible photographs that capture so well the essence of play!

Pop-up Adventure Playground @ Playeum

10 Dec 2016


Our 5th and final pop-up for the year took place last Saturday at Playeum's Playazza. This time round we got to see children engage in a lot of socio-dramatic play from delivering babies, to building houses (including laying internet cables!) and riding cardboard trains. We hope everybody enjoyed themselves as much as we did!


Thank you to Pop-Up Adventure Play for their continuous support, Playeum for giving us access to their amazing outdoor space and to our volunteers (Achal, Ana, Duyen, Olivia, Reddy, Sourabh and Voja) - please know that we couldn't have done it without you.
