Run by early childhood nature school Kidz Treehouse, ForestPlay is Singapore's first nature adventure playground for kids 4-14 years old.
Located in Sentosa, the 13,000 square feet outdoor area is filled with unique and fun challenges and is a place where kids can engage in unstructured play amidst the backdrop of lush greenery and ocean waves.
Guided by ForestPlay's experienced play-workers, children will use tools and materials such as recycled wood, tyres, and ropes to create and build on existing structures.
ForestPlay is a drop-off session where children are encouraged to build creatively without adult supervision.
Parents can sit back and relax at the observation deck or simply pick up the kiddos at the end of the session.
ForestPlay provides a space that brings out the sense of adventure in children, harness their creativity, and allows them to learn in a natural environment.
"Risky play" where children are given the right amount of risk and challenge in play is encouraged.
ForestPlay believes that only by doing so will children feel excitement, and that a risky play environment will help develop grit, risk awareness, and critical thinking skills in young learners.
Hence, kids are given real tools such as real saws and hammers to work with and are free to build whatever they want.
Nevertheless, parents will be assured that ForestPlay's experienced play-workers are always on hand to provide guidance and assistance.
Allowing children to take risks encourages them to experiment with new ideas and think of creative ways to overcome challenges and obstacles.
According to ForestPlay, children as young as 4 years old have worked with tools successfully to build dollhouses and swords!
Aside from the Build and Tool Play Area, there are many other activities that kids are free to choose from as well.
