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.
Move the sheets to hooks and knobs well placed throughout the hideaway area – the perfect space with the best materials for making blanket fort-like tunnels and hiding spaces.
Build and create and play at the train tables and block tables.
Read and relax in the beehive block structure.
Climb ladders and explore in the wooden play space.
Play pretend in the barn, the store, the farm field and the kitchen. Kids can dress up in costume appropriate for that area or try on a whimsical costume.
The Discovery Station is included in Conner Prairie admission and is open throughout the year. Find current admission prices and hours on the Conner Prairie website.
