What's on for Kids and Families in Aberdeen City & Shire (15th - 21st April 2017)Seaton Park Loose Parts Play

Bus Route: Beach Esplanade – Bus no.15

At Aberdeen Play Forum we run play sessions in parks and green spaces around the city during school holidays. We provide our loose parts kit for children and families to play with.

Loose Parts are materials which children can move, adapt, control, change and manipulate in their play. Loose parts play offers children high levels of creativity and choice. The materials can be whatever the child wants them to be – the possibilities are endless. There are no set instructions with loose parts – children have to use their imagination, take control and lead their own play. With a little imagination they can be transformed into almost anything… Tarpaulins turn into dens, crates and tyres could be a car or a bus, pipes for water play and lots more!

Children must be accompanied by a parent or carer at sessions, and Aberdeen Play Forum are not responsible for participants. Sessions are run as ‘drop-ins’ and operate as per ‘Street Play’ programmes: they are free of charge and not compulsory; participants who feel the session is unsuitable for them are free to leave at any time or will not attend; participants use their own discretion; participants are responsible for their own health, safety and general well-being; Staff, Aberdeen Play Forum and Aberlour Childcare Trust are not responsible for participants.

All of our Play Rangers are trained in first aid. Each Play Ranger Carries with them a rucksack which contains: First Aid Kit, Poo Bags, Wipes, Bin bags and a copy of our Policies&Procedures/Risk Benefit Assessments.
