Imagination Playground

You may have hear of the arrival of something new at recess called Imagination Playground. Imagination Playground Blocks are large, foam parts that allow children to play at an architectural scale (think Tinker Toys on steroids). The set consists of 15 different shapes to encourage open-ended free play. Children play most creatively in settings they can manipulate. Imagination Playground empowers children to influence the space around them, and allows for many types of activities, including constructive, dramatic and gross motor play. With Imagination Playground, children can create their own narratives, activities and environments; build something and tear it down!
