We love a visit from the snow princess. Since we have opened she has come visit us 4 times and she is still the most requested princess. We love all the fun activities we do at our special events themed around her and her friends like the building a love-able snowman.
Snow Princess likes to read the kids a story about her adventures in her kingdom.
What would a snow princess be without snow? The kids love playing with the snow that she magically conjures.
We usually end with some facepainting so kids get one and one time with the princess.
Watch this video from when she brought one of her friend’s with her to our summer party.
Since August is back to school month we thought we would join in the festivities and do our own back to school pretend play. Even your non-school age kids can go back to school at Imagine Play.
The kids can ride to school on their very own yellow school bus and park it on campus.
The theme includes an art desk that we adore! They come with a little drawer to store all the kids art supplies. The perfect combination of cute style and function, it would look awesome in a child’s bedroom!
Instead of including notebooks and pens we decided to put these magnetic mazes from Lakeshore Learning on the desks. The kids can pretend to write with the magnetic pens. We have several themes for mazes, which helps the kids learn their letters and shapes.
Read to your kids in our back to school corner. We included a very sensory friendly book and a classic that every kid loves by Eric Carle.
Toddler friendly backpacks are hung on the wall for kids to carry around their favorite thing. This is such a cute edition to our back to school pretend play theme and the kids love wearing them!
Lastly, an alphabet pocket center is includes with flash cards. Kids can sort the cards by letters and learn the objects associated with each letter.
Back to school has been a joy to put together and we know your kids will enjoy going back to school too! Visit us for open play in the month of August to enjoy this play area.
You can buy any of the items from this theme below:
This summer camp consisted of some of our favorite topics and there was many fun art things to do, it was almost sad that we had to condense it down, but the kids had a blast just the same.
Each day we did a short lesson plan which included reading books about our topic, sticker scenes and sensory play. Our favorites was doing a gardening activity and making a moon out of clay.
Art camp wouldn’t be art camp without tons of art. One of our all time favorites is sand art. Forewarning it can be messy and you will feel sand on the bottom of your feet for days! The kids love coloring with sand.
Of course the all time MVP is painting. Nothing beats a painting activity. We painted underwater scenes and rockets for this summer camp.
Check out the video for this art camp to see more of out fun activities.

Last week we finished up our first art camp for ages 3 to 7. The kids learned about the seasons and we did related art projects according to each season. It was the most rewarding week yet at Imagine Play.
Every morning we started off with an activity. The kids learned the reasons for seasons, the weather for each season, and the calendar months associated with each season.
We also played season themed games, sang songs, read books and incorporated felt boards.
But most of all we did ART!
Art projects included painting of a beach, a scroll tree hand that represented fall, winter photo blocks and a spring flower pot with included grass seeds for them to plant at home.
