Children ages 2 and up are welcome to join, along with their caregivers, to play and build with Imagination Playground Blocks. Free with admission to the Museum, no pre-registration required.
With their uniform color, abstract shapes, and infinite configurations, Imagination Playground blocks encourage spatial learning, social development, movement, and above all, fun. The blocks invite children to engage in open-ended free play while also helping them to begin to develop problem-solving skills and complex thinking.
Blocks play an important part in a wide variety of curricula developed by some of the world’s most noted educators and have long been regarded as valuable learning tools. Imaginational Playground blocks can also help children develop spatial relationships, including the concepts of interior and exterior, open and closed, and near and far. Imagination Playground’s large blue blocks can provide an introduction to symbolization and visual discrimination, two important pre-reading skills.
This program is free with admission to the Museum, no registration required.
