Imagination Playground blocks were a big hit, as always.
|This giant structure was a tremendous collaborative effort.|
Adding loose parts created even more opportunities for play.
|This grandma and grandson build a steep ramp and took turns rolling and catching balls. Much chasing and giggling ensued!|
We also provided wood working with real tools, stick structures with dowels and rubber bands, and Rigamajig – a set of boards, pulleys, wheels, nuts and bolts that inspire creative construction.
|This family with older kids approached reluctantly, skeptical about playing. But hours later, they were still busy building and rebuilding their house – here dad prepares the curtains!|
|This tiny teepee was barely built for two!|
Cardboard was a hugely popular play material.
|This cardboard dwelling – colored inside and out with chalk – had a fabric “carpet” and constantly changing occupants.|
|This box was occupied by one of its territorial “owners” for well over two hours!|
We saw A LOT of inspired fort building with cardboard, dowels, fabric and more.
|and MORE forts!|
Thanks to our caped play crusaders and to everyone who played with us this summer!
