KidZone: UM Early Childhood Centers

Exploring Loose Parts

Tuesday, June 12 @ 5pm
KidZone Tent

Join us exploring play with loose parts! Children will have wonderful opportunities to design ramps and pathways for moving objects. They will also be able to create with clay and natural elements.  Loose parts are materials that can be moved, carried, combined, redesigned, lined up, and taken apart and put back together in multiple ways. They are materials with no specific set of directions that can be used alone or combined with other materials. For children this means they can control and change the ingredients while they play!

An interactive area for our youngest festival-goers, the KidZone tent provides a fun and safe area for children and their parents to discover and explore a wide variety of hands-on activities with different community partners. From learning karate, creating homemade instruments, or meeting prehistoric critters, KidZone offers different nightly activities for families at Top of the Park.

Led by community partners, all sessions are free, and take place from 5 to 8 pm every Tuesday through Sunday at the KidZone tent at Top of the Park.
