Playschool Playscapes

Highly engaging teambuilding programs with a community give-back component. Your group works together to build all natural outdoor play items benefiting at-risk daycares, pre-schools, and elementary schools.

The Activity

In this highly engaging group activity, teams will build outdoor play items made of all natural materials for daycares and schools in areas where kids need the most support. Recent studies prove the huge benefits to childhood development when kids play freely in an outdoor setting using natural materials while engaging in tactile and imaginative play. 

How it Works

Teams of 8-10 work together to ‘win’ packages of materials by answering trivia questions about play and childhood development. They then assign each other roles (e.g. drillmaster, artist, designer) and work together to construct mud pie kitchens, benches, or vertical gardens with chosen themes (e.g. family, community, animals, sharing). The activity is book-ended with fun ice breakers and team building games and education led by our expert facilitators.

Benefit to your Group

Unlike many give-back activities, your group will leave feeling like they have personally made an immediate and tangible difference in the lives of children. They will also have a chance to get their hands dirty and try something different all while working as a team. People will be given the opportunity to do something for others, which in turn makes them happier and healthier people. 


Playschool Playscapes was incredible, I have had so much great feedback about how fun it was, and how much they loved the fact that we were “giving back”. I know that was a lot of work for your team to prepare, and we truly do appreciate you working with us to make that happen! I have heard from many people that it was the best sales rally ever...so thank you for contributing to that in a big way!

Many of our families here at Woodwards are quite vulnerable... the whole idea and research behind your ‘mud pie kitchens’ really speaks to our philosophy as we really try to incorporate more of a natural, minimalist feel to our sites and child care spaces. This is such a wonderful addition to our outdoor play space and I know the children will benefit greatly from its innovative design!
