A new play program aimed at getting kids back to nature has been given a local focus. 

Logan City Council has joined forces with Nature Play QLD to create a Logan version of the ‘Passport to an Amazing Childhood’ program which challenges young people to complete a series of nature play ‘missions’ and record their results in their Nature Play passports.

 

Environment and Sustainability Chairperson, Councillor Lisa Bradley, said the City of Logan provided plenty of opportunities for kids to get every page of their outdoor play passports stamped.

 

“This is the first time a local version of these passports has been created and they are filled with Logan-based suggestions for fun and free activities that children can participate in across the city,” Cr Bradley said.

 

“Those suggestions, which are mainly aimed at kids aged 12 and under, include things like camping, searching for a particular type of animal, visiting a creek or something as simple as climbing a tree.

 

“We want to see kids swap screen time for ‘green time’ so they can experience the simple pleasures of exploring the environment in their own backyards.”
