What’s your favorite part of the playground?

Can you draw it for me?

Now let’s build our own !

Incorporating a subject like the playground is a great conversation starter for young children.
It’s a place that they get to laugh and play but also further develop gross motor skills and learn about the world through role playing with peers.

That’s why I thought it would be fun to have the children draw their favorite part of the playground then build their very own.
