KidZone: The Wonder of Learning
Exploring Loose Parts
Friday, June 16 @ 5pm KidZone Tent
Let your creativity loose to combine and manipulate many materials, natural and synthetic. 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. Join staff from the UM’s North Campus Children’s Center in this preview of their “Wonder of Learning Exhibit” for families and early childhood educators on campus.
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.
