Ready, set, play! Imagination Playground, LLC, creators of the breakthrough play space concept that encourages child-directed, unstructured free play, is excited to announce the launch of its Fall 2016 Learn & Play Tour.

Stopping at children’s museums throughout North America, the Learn & Play Tour invites educators and parents to witness the power of creative block play, as children create with Imagination Playground’s Big Blue Blocks.

Kicking off on September 16, Imagination Playground’s Fall Learn & Play tour stops include: Kidspace Children’s Museum, Children’s Museum of Atlanta, Kohl Children's Museum, the Bay Area Discovery Museum, Brooklyn Children's Museum, Children's Discovery Museum of San Jose, Boston Children's Museum, Seattle Children’s Museum, Miami Children's Museum, Please Touch Museum, the National Building Museum, Chicago Children's Museum, and the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History.

Learn & Play events promote the importance of play and its benefits by giving educators, parents, and children admission-free access to build with Imagination Playground. An Imagination Playground senior executive is on hand to guide discussions on the global state of play, and the many ways in which play aids in child development. All adult attendees receive a thank you gift for attending, with educators receiving a special teacher’s gift valued at $75. Educators can also receive school teaching credit in exchange for participating. Everyone is invited to submit a ballot to win a Big Blue Blocks set of their very own.

Imagination Playground President David Krishock expressed his excitement and gratitude, saying, “We thank our amazing museum partners as we unite to promote play, and we proudly support their mission to build strong local communities.”
