Strong Museum of Play

Even if you are not able to visit the museum, this website showcases some amazing ideas for games and interactive activities for kids. You can explore:
  • children's literature
  • a kid-sized supermarket
  • the Sesame Street neighborhood, and more.
Go to Just for Kids to answer quiz questions, manipulate tangrams, draw a family portrait, or make a paper bag puppet. The site also explains why play is essential to child development. Quote from the site: Play is fun! But play is also a whole lot more. Humans have played since earliest times, and philosophers and scholars have thought about it for centuries. More than 2,000 years ago, Plato suggested, “You can discover more about a person in an hour of play than in a year of conversation.”

"Working with Barbara Bray is like working with an angel of the pacific -- her knowledge and talents and generosity exceed anyone I've ever worked with for over two decades in the field of education, especially educational technology. Working within the framework of the Universal Builder helps you to clarify your thoughts and make your project clearer and more appealing, and then, once Barbara steps in and does her magic, your creation goes beyond what you could have ever imagined it to be. I am so grateful and honored to have connected with such talent!"
