Tomorrow and Wednesday the IDEA BOX will make its debut.
The IDEA BOX was created for your family, your classroom, your child, and for you!
The IDEA is that this box can entice many different play interests at different levels and ages, cultivating a community that prioritizes play in our children’s lives. We hope to partner with many supportive collaborators, in order for this box to become a unique and significant part of your household and classroom. Every month we will send you a different IDEA BOX, including a special note to parents about Play Adventures' philosophy, and how to encourage self-directed play for your children. Inside each box there will be something new, unique, and intriguing for your kids to discover. We will also
Play Adventures will curate various loose parts that will allow your kids to explore their creativity. I wonder... what you will make?
We are proud to introduce STEAM LABS! - A collective of friends, family, and community partners who will contribute additional fun surprises into the IDEA BOX. Local businesses, nonprofit organizations, and institutions of higher learning will partner with us to deliver science experiments, tech innovations, art projects, or other educational activities with all the materials needed to test an IDEA. And we are excited to begin producing and sharing entertaining videos that will provide guidance on working through the STEAM LAB activities.
