Inspired by adventure playgrounds, Unboxed : Adventures in Cardboard invites children and their families to test their imaginations as they build, construct, and invent forts using everyday materials such as cardboard, tape, fabric, string, and other recyclables.
Fort-building ignites imaginative play and is one of the most beneficial learning tools for any child, leading to a lifetime of innovation and creativity. Children create narratives as they play, keeping them engaged longer and helping them retain information. This wonderful workshop invites children and their parents or caregivers to work collaboratively to create together.
