Expanding imaginative play opportunities for young children, Little Lorikeet Steiner Playgroup, Yarraville
Little Lorikeet Steiner playgroup is the only Steiner-based playgroup in Melbourne’s west. Our emphasis is on free, creative play and artistic activities that nourish the child’s soul.
We wish to upgrade our sandpit by purchasing a handmade mud kitchen (with chalkboard back), adding elevated sandpit borders and wooden balance logs. A mud kitchen will provide the opportunity for creative expression and a varied sensory experience for children, encouraging an imaginative-fuelled childhood.
The major costs associated with the project are
Purchase of handmade wooden mud kitchen Play equipment to be used with mud kitchen Pavers to be used as footing for the kitchen Concrete bags for footing for logs Wooden beams (pine) to increase sandpit height Thin MDF to add to backing of kitchen (for chalkboard) Sand
