This is a project that has three phases. Firstly making your background, then building your park and finally…playing in your park. Great for preschoolers who still enjoy knocking blocks all over the place.


  • Tub blocks or foam squares
  • 1 Pre-made collage background
  • 1+ Finger skateboards or cars


  1. Make a collage background. We wanted to do a more industrial theme but my girls decided to colour things in pink and orange.
  2. In front of your collage background take a tub of blocks and set up an obstacle style course with ramps and steps.
  3. If you have other items such as little plastic bins, cardboard box buildings or bottle caps you can add those too. We also use hot wheels cars.

  • Great project, looks like so much fun to make and then play with!


  • This is such a great project


  • This is a far better and simpler way than paper mache. The one picturedc above can also easily be dismantled if necessary.

  • Love this, it’s so awesome.


  • This is awesome and so cool. I’m so not crafty minded, but can totally appreciate how clever this is.


  • Looks cool! My toddler wouldn’t be able to resist knocking this over!


  • Very clever and creative. Thank you


  • Oh wow! Very creative. The kids will love this.


  • So creative! Great job! I can’t wait to make this with my son. I think I’d enjoy it too


  • Love it !


  • This is wonderful. So much imagination has gone into it.


  • Fascinating play thing – and gets them off the technical games.


  • This reminds me of my own 3 boys years ago that had a trolley of wooden blocks & they all would spend hours setting up their imaginary play parks. These simple blocks are now an added attraction for my grandkids to enjoy! A great way to see kiddies entertain themselves.
