Exhale and fly a kite!

We are really gearing up for Exhale Festival Exhale programmenow, with the page up showcasing tents to hire and the team for play and games coming together. I'm also making long lists of the right range of products for our on-site shop - do share your favourite tips!     We're also planning our Playday2014 - are you? We've loads of gorgeous new water bottles Colourful kanteensand some kites at the stall at Broadway Market Schoolyard, so if you're passing by, come and say hello and take a look. I won't be there this week but the fantastic Kelda and Philip will be. Kelda is a very experienced Playworker so if you have any questions about how to get your kids or the neighbourhood kids a bit more wild, then she's your woman. Somersault Festival last week was great fun, and huge thanks to the folks who came and joined in the discussion. We were reflecting on why kids don't go out, and how we can bring down the barriers to kids enjoying their own communities. There will be a dedicated blog coming up, but we agreed key calls to politicians in the upcoming elections, such as:
  • better cycleways and ways for young people to move round their own community
  • making street closures like Playing Out easier and everywhere
  • making the importance of outdoor play better known
I also really enjoyed meeting Free Range Urban Kids who are planning a completely outdoor nursery! In Hackney! Do take a look at what they are doing. Right I'm off to Womad with the family where we'll be seeing how few plastic and paper cups we can avoid using... The tiffins are also useful for checking that festy facepaint! Don't forget you could check out the Hackney Wild Walks this weekend, and maybe take a kite! Have a fab weekend and make it easy Cath
