Play! Build! Climb!

September 20 through November 4

Climb the walls at Creative Discovery Museum this fall--literally! Children and their caregivers will enjoy Play! Build! Climb!, the challenging and delightful Creative Discovery Museum exhibit, September 20 through November 4, 2014.

Kids will go back to the basics with two building block areas. Experiment and design using the enormous supply of blocks contained in the block corrals. Preschoolers can build a town as they experiment with the concepts of height, length and size. In another block area, children can become architects as they explore shape, size and design concepts by building skyscrapers, domed buildings, or castles.

Kids can also stretch the minds as well as their bodies with Snug Play USA. This exciting, movable play system was developed in the United Kingdom and is provided by PlayCore, a leading designer and manufacturer of play and recreation equipment, headquartered in Chattanooga, Tenn. Children will use their imagination to transform Snug’s unique play components into creative environments that encourage physical activity and promote critical thinking. Use Snug pieces to bounce, rock, climb, and create a story.

A large climbing area will let children climb the walls as they navigate the traverse-climbing wall that is a part of Play! Build! Climb! with cross lateral movement. Cross lateral movement benefits a child’s development by using both sides of the brain and connecting them. Next, they will go up, up, up to climb the Volcano, a circular climbing wall.

“One of the best ways children learn is through play,” said Henry Schulson, Executive Director at Creative Discovery Museum. “This exhibit should be a tremendous amount of fun as children engage in climbing challenges and use their imaginations to create worlds of their own.”

Play! Build! Climb! provides a complete experience for kids by teaching problem solving and critical thinking skills and offering opportunities for physical activity and social development. Play! Build! Climb! provides hours of fun and valuable educational experiences for kids aged three and up.
