*On loan from Habitot Children’s Museum

December 16th – April 29th, 2018

Imagination Playground is an interactive, transformable exhibit that prompts children to manipulate their environment and create a play space of their own with varied sized and shaped loose parts. The exhibition includes foam bricks and cylinders, chutes and channels and are easy to stack, line up and move around. Children enjoy an endless variety of play patterns including construction, pretend play, role-playing and inventing their own games. Most importantly, they are deeply engaged, active and have hours of fun.  Imagination Playground addresses a broader spectrum of play needs through opportunities for fantasy play and socio-cooperative play, in addition to more traditional running, jumping and climbing. 

This exhibit and Discovery Lab  are intended for our younger Chabot visitors (ages 0-5).
