Roaming Ruckus: A True Play Program
Join the Building for Kids and the Appleton Public Library for a True Play Program developed in partnership with Anji Play educators and based on the 5 pillars of Anji Play: Love, Risk, Joy, Engagement and Reflection. Participants will meet outdoors for a period of child directed play using open ended materials. At the end of their time, children are encouraged to create a “Play Story” and share their reflections on their play. These sessions will take place at various parks throughout Appleton.
