Creative Play

Throughout the day kids engage in creative outdoor games and challenges. Every activity is designed to foster cooperative learning and group problem solving through play.

In this game called “Egg Carts” kids raced across a field to deliver eggs on PVC pipes. The goal of the game was to safely transport an egg from the chicken coop to an egg carton.

The marble run is an example of an activity that provides “loose parts” for kids to manipulate and arrange in an infinite amount of creative ways. Silly and challenging prompts are introduced throughout the activity to get kids problem solving together.
