From my first moment in playwork, I knew this was something powerful and important. I felt it in my bones, and have been stubbornly determined to stay in this field ever since. A lot of us have stories of moments like that, when something ‘clicked’ inside and changed...
Driving in the car, I’m going through my To Do list and berating myself. I’m always behind where I want to be, feeling late and worried. I keep putting ‘creative writing time’ on my calendar, but day after day other things get crossed off first. The Vulnerability of...
By Pop-Ups Morgan I’ve struggled to write about Campference, both before and after it actually happened. I had ‘wheelbarrows full of potatoes’ written on a piece of card that I carried around for nearly a year, intended as the seed of a blog post on the most recent...
Pop-Up Adventure Play is pleased to announce the Pop-Ups Tour 2019: Morgan Edition. Morgan Leichter-Saxby will be touring across Illinois, Indiana and Missouri during her tour this Fall, and will be setting off on 23rd October. The trip starts in Chicago, then onwards...
By Zan The coming year promises to be filled with adventure. Right off the bat, we are excited to be just over a month away from the second-ever Playwork Campference, a gathering of over 70 play advocates from 6 different countries in one of our favourite adventure...

We have a slow but steady trickle of requests coming in from other organisations. They want to use Suzanna’s photographs of children at play, get a quote or opinion. It’s very rarely promoting something specific, and usually about creating shared content...
By Morgan Where will we be this year? As I write this, Suzanna and I are both close to home. I’m teaching in Middlebury and she’s keeping our social media a fire where others can warm up. I’m planning the first pop-up adventure playground in my own...
By Morgan Well, we’re on the final stretch of our Grand Canadian Tour! Our last stop in BC was Surrey and included both a pop-up adventure playground and a screening of The Land. These two events were hosted by Child Care Options and gave us the chance to meet folks...
By Morgan We stopped at Laurier Heights Out of School Care to meet with our host Sherri, who led us out from the parking lot and into the field behind the school. Loose parts were stacked out there already, waiting. “I can bring out more,” she said but we assured her...
