Wednesday, September 26, 2018 by The Press in Columns

Join us 6:30-7:30 p.m. Oct. 2 for Creation Station Club. It is open to all children.

Construction play teaches children to problem solve, connect socially, understand and be inquisitive in their play. Playing with no specific set purpose or limitations allow children to use the full force of their imaginations. Also, building something gives children immense satisfaction and a feeling of accomplishment, which is great for their confidence and sense of independence.
