What the kids have to say…

We’ve been meeting with schools to get their thoughts about play. If you want to see the “raw data”, you can look at the links below (by raw data I mean brainstorming and some great sketches). Anytime we meet with a school class, we always leave with great things… it’s nice to have the opportunity to connect with some unhindered thinking.

Wonder Park Elementary
Highland Technical High School
Clark Middle School
