New Playground at Waldorf from Kinderspielkunst

Excited for the new playground
Materials


Part I (Read Part II, Read Part III)
This winter break the children of Haleakala Waldorf School are getting a terrific gift: a new playground. I went down to campus to check out what was going on, and found a big pile of kiawe wood piled up in the parking stalls near the grades building on campus. Timo a 4th grade student was accompanying me on my discovery tour. We checked out the wood, and I then went on to investigate the materials that the builders will be using, and took a look at the playground to see where the structure will be built.
Wilfried Brewer and Walter Peter from the playground company Kinderspielkunst (kinderspielkunst.de) arrived a few days ago on the island of Maui, and tomorrow will draw up plans for the free form, unique structure for our school.


As the structure comes to life, I will continue to document the progress. Take a look at some work these creative artists have completed here: http://www.paradiesgaerten.ch/temp/kinderspielkunst/start.php

Plot on playground for new structure.
Happiest of Holidays to you and yours!
