Play Spaces

Come and share great stories, explore your imagination, or take time out to relax and reflect on your day at Out of the Box festival.

Find a comfortable spot to curl up with a book to share or gather your energy to play in the dedicated space for babies , toddlers, preschoolers and their families.

Grab a book from the selection or get creative in the space especially for the older kids and their adults.

Out of the Box festival Play Spaces are a fun, yet gentle, environment for you and your child to relax and enjoy language and early literacy activities together.

Out of the Box festival offers opportunities for children to engage in arts-rich experiences to explore and extend in-class literacy and learning. Teachers can deepen their student’s engagement with and experience of the festival by talking to them about the different in-theatre experiences, workshops and activities before, during and after their day.

To help with this, the Out of the Box festival team has prepared numerous Creative Learning Guides which link the in-theatre experiences, activities and workshops at the festival with the Early Years Learning Framework and the Australian Curriculum (Version 8). Key messages, learning activities and other resources are also included.

The Creative Learning Guide for Play Spaces can be downloaded here.
