Play Booklet for City Released

Remake Learning and Root+All released a play booklet titled, “If Kids Built a City” that details the importance of play being built into the city of Pittsburgh, from parks and museums to doctor’s offices.

Featured is the Playful Pittsburgh Collaborative, which supports and is dedicated to advancing play within the city. Initiatives like the Hazelwood Play Trail are helping to rectify “play deserts”, allowing kids to play in any neighborhood. At Trying Together, we work to help educators get creative with our Play Academy, teaching developmentally appropriate practices to learning through play. Additionally, our Imagination Playgrounds use soft, blue blocks to let children create a playground anywhere they imagine.

“Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children play is serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood.” -Fred Rogers
