Fun with Kids

Kids Play Passport

There are so many exciting things to do with children in Canberra.  This wonderful CBR website 'natureplaycbr' will provide you with ideas for your child run, skip, jump, climb, splash, invent, explore and play outside. 

You will also be able to apply for a ‘Passport to an Amazing Childhood’  - a Nature Play CBR program which offers an exciting, interactive and fun way to get active and outdoors! The idea is to get kids (3-12+) outside by completing a series of fun, low (or no) cost 'missions'. Missions are delivered through a signature passport booklet, available free to Canberrans and surrounding NSW regions.  The passport has ten 'mission' pages, stickers and suggestions on great places to go and things to do outdoors, most of which can be completed in backyards, school grounds or local parks and reserves.

Also, at the back of the passport, there is a list of '15 things every kid should do before they’re 12.'
