Kingdom Taproom & Table Build It Lab

The Kingdom Taproom and Table Build It Lab is a joyous romp through creative exploration!

We’ve designed six stations to create an action-packed attraction in our classroom. Each Build It area encourages unstructured, imaginative play for muscles and minds. Stations include Medium Blue Blocks, Rigamajig, KEVA Planks, architectural wooden blocks, LEGOs, and K’NEX.  Each station includes interpretive information about the “toys,” their history, and their importance to early childhood development.

Adam Kane, executive director says, “We’ve created a new dimension to the Museum’s summer exhibits that invites open-ended play. In the Build It Lab, children will be able to develop associations about movement, gravity, form, balance, structure, and more through experimentation and self-directed discovery. Most of all, this is a place to come again and again to try something new … and build something unique.”

After the initial opening in the Fairbanks Museum this summer, Build It Lab stations will be available to libraries and community centers for temporary installation.
