Ontario’s first Ultimate Block Party highlighted the art and sciences of play. It was a huge success.
The rain stopped, the sun came out, and thousands of children and their caregivers enjoyed playing and learning at Fort York National Historic site.
Kids peered through telescopes, created art, listened to stories, sang songs, and created innovative structures using Lego, Imagination Playground materials, clay, and boxes. They played ball and danced about. Parents and caregivers had the chance to learn more about the importance of play in stimulating children’s healthy development. Check out My Playbook for a detailed look at the program for the day.
As a long-time advocate of play-based learning, ETFO is proud to have funded and produced this unique event.
