Discovery Station at Conner Prairie

Learning through play is one of the most important and best ways to learn for kids. As an adult, I’m going to just throw it out there that it’s the most productive way to learn too. This summer, Conner Prairie opened up their newly remodeled and re-imagined indoor play (and learn) area called Discovery Station. Included in this area is the craft corner, a space with materials and project ideas with staff supervision.

I love that many of the areas and things designed for this area were made by Conner Prairie employees!

Designed for children 8 and under, families will love exploring every nook and cranny as well as making new ones.
