See what’s happening in other cities and countries to encourage and promote outdoor play. Can it happen here? June 5 and 12 – Alderney Landing Public Library.
Playgrounds reviewed, and a talk on the art of play June 5/12
With the good weather coming, you’ve probably already started to go outside again to play. If not, you should. I’m a big fan of play and activity…as some of you may have guessed, OTC was started because one adult (that’s me) was playing with an idea and also trying to get outside more.
