Watch a puddle become an ocean, a rock become a mountain and a stick become a magic wand. Nature play is only limited by your child's imagination – let them fuel it in the great outdoors.

Enjoy the great outdoors with your family by doing a nature play challenge in Christchurch's fantastic parks! 

Check out the nature play parks map for some great locations where you can complete your challenge.


Between Saturday 4 and Sunday 19 July, download and fill out a Nature Play Challenge sheet. Send a photo or pdf attachment of your child's completed challenge to to enter the draw to win a cool Explorer's pack! 

The winner will be drawn at the close of Kidsfest and will be contacted via email address or phone number.

The winner must be able to collect prize from the Botanic Gardens Visitor Centre or Christchurch City Council Civic Building on Hereford Street.
