Allow your child to create imaginary places, dramatic scenarios and endless fun in this child-directed and open-ended play space. The blocks are deliberately oversized, so students will be more likely to help each other with them. The simple act of matching and contrasting blocks according to their attributes can help younger students learn geometric shapes and patterns. Students can learn to apply lessons on basic engineering, architecture, and physics. Children will participate in a healthy social, emotional and intellectually developed atmosphere in a fun and mobile class. Imagination Playground block- play is larger-than-life encouraging kids to play together in groups and have fun!
