Promote Creativity and Imagination Through Play

Outdoor Education That's Serious Fun

Transform your GameTime playground into an outdoor classroom and encourage dynamic, creative play that helps children make connections between important academic concepts and their everyday lives. The Outdoor Creative Play and Learning Kit includes 100 standards-based activities that reinforce classroom learning in language arts, science, mathematics, physical education, social studies and creative arts.

Activities for Every Student

The kit comes in a sturdy laminated case with a comprehensive instructor's guide, assessment tools and reproducible activity cards divided by age/grade (pre-K through 5th grade). Each card lists age-appropriate activities, child-friendly illustrations, physical education objectives and strategies to make each activity inclusive for all participants. There are "easy" and "challenge" options for each card so you can modify the activity to suit the needs of your class or group.

Reinforce Classroom Learning Outdoors

Nurturing a child's imagination and creativity fosters healthy development. The Outdoor Creative Play and Learning kit can be used with a new or existing play space, and the activities provide fun ways for educators and park professionals to reinforce classroom learning. Each activity card includes content connections to academic topics, and assessment checklists help facilitators measure a child's progress toward specific skills. Request more information or purchase a kit to make your playground a fun and memorable learning experience.
