What if you could turn a play date into a community-enriching experience that leaves adults and children alike excited to enhance their "empathy, collaboration, creativity, persistence and problem solving?"

Tinkergarten has designed an experience with that exact thought in mind. Serving children from 18-months to 8-years-old, this national movement sees a future where “all families will have access to high quality early learning, so their children will be ready to thrive, ready to learn and ready for anything.” While it could appear as just another day of fun in the sun for the kids, the parents will be informed of how each activity is supporting the growth and development of their children. Better yet, Tinkergarten provides an entire library of DIY activities that target a variety of developmental competencies any adult can reproduce for their and their neighbor’s children. Discover how these open-walled opportunities can help engage the young learners in your community.
