artplay backyard, birarrung marr

Tucked in behind Fed Square is a kids dream. A playground, beautiful rolling hills and the creative masterpiece zone that is ArtPlay. Run by the City of Melbourne, Artplay run sessions most days of the week and are a creative way to inspire your tribe. Mamma's hot tip - try and make it for a Backyard Play session. Not only are they FREE but there is no need to book - just drop in. Facilitated by local artists, sessions provide the materials, the physical space and a starting point. The rest is up to the IMAGINATION! In the latest session Mamma attended it was all about that hillside, gravity and construction. Children were encouraged to test different materials and create their own rolling machine. The giggles when their cardboard creations built up speed down the hill were absolutely delightful! Keep your eye on the ArtPlay program for a whole range of activities - just act quick if you do need to book - they sell out almost as soon as they are advertised. 

Mamma's special mention: feeling inspired? There are so many arty things to uncover while in the city on both sides of the Yarra - at the NGV, St Kilda Road and NGV Federation Square. OR of course explore the lane ways for more!
