Playground Maker Space

We've been stockpiling fallen sticks and branches for a while and have now introduced a stick construction area in our playground. Kids have begun to build cubby houses and use their imaginations to toast marshmallows around campfires.

Children like to naturally build and play with common objects in their environment. This new outside "maker space" is just the thing to allow the creative, collaborative play that's so vital to intellectual and social growth. It's only in its initial stage but already the results are exceptional. Take a look at what's been built!
