The Village Green
What is it?
The Village Green is a mini real-life world where children get the chance to role play their possible future – doctor, firefighter, barista, daycare worker, farmer, cafe owner, chef, you name it!
This pop-up play experience celebrates all the magic of creative role-playing, allowing children to try their hand at a variety of occupations, and learn more about each one along the way in a ‘village-like’ atmosphere.
The space features eight key play stations with relevant props and dress ups. These include a:
- Fire station
- Daycare centre
- Building site
- Doctor’s surgery
- Cafe with an alfresco area
- Market stall
- Bright ‘village green’ theming with green grass underfoot & wooden truss roof stalls
- 8 different play stations
- Appropriate dress up clothes in each station
- Interactive props such as pretend chickens, wooden eggs, vineyard with grapes, veggie patch, fruit tree, doctor’s equipment, shopping trolleys & prams
- Two educators/supervisors to guide children & keep the areas tidy
- Long central benches for parents to take a break, or enjoy a pretend meal or coffee prepared by their little chefs & baristas
- Optional retailer tie ins – for example, our recent activation at Geelong Central had vouchers for parents to get a free babyccino for their little one at nearby Degani Cafe with any coffee purchase
What type of event is best?
A large indoor space – such as a centre court location or a vacant tenancy – is recommended.
- Centre court location
- A large, vacant tenancy activation
- Large events
- Featured activity at a museum or large library space
- School holiday programs
- End-of-year school events
- A minimum 9 x 9m or equivalent area

The Village Green is an extremely flexible activation that can easily be tailored to suit your centre or space. Perhaps tie it to a themed retail event, or encourage retailers to jump on board with a special offer to encourage parents to visit their store after playtime.
