ONLINE Community Webinar

Build it Up! Designing Creative Block Spaces

Build it up! Knock it down! Build something new! Our block spaces are one of the most popular play spaces in our environment for many children. It’s a space for children to express their creativity, problem solve, engage in different types of play and recreate the world around them. Here is where our engineers, landscape architects, architects, artists, urban designers and construction workers are discovered! Children are amazing at creating the world around them and a world they imagine when they are given the time, space and tools to do so! Let’s support this creative outlet by reflecting on our block spaces and how they embrace the image of the child. What materials do we provide that nurture their interests here? How can we extend on these interests? From carpet samples, to types of blocks, to complimentary pieces, the possibilities are endless when we create responsive block spaces. Block spaces go beyond wooden blocks, people, cars and animals…there is so much more! Join us as we explore some unique ways to enhance your block space to allow children to express themselves, discover and PLAY!


  1. Identifying the importance of block play
  2. Identify the 7 stages of block play
  3. Reflect on how to extend block play
