LEGO DUPLO to Read, Build, Play & Support Early Literacy around Birminghamfeatured, to do — By Angie on July 25, 2012 at 3:28 pm
Each summer, libraries, parks, museums and various other family attractions work to entertain, excite and inspire children all summer long in educational and fun ways. For communities across the country, these venues are pillars of summer excitement and continued learning. To celebrate exploration, learning and play from a young age and support cities in their efforts to spice up summer, LEGO DUPLO has launched the Read! Build! Play! national tour and is coming to Birmingham to ignite exploration in toddlers and introduce new ways to play and learn to parents.
Designed for children under five, the Read! Build! Play! experience brings together reading, building, singing and storytelling in a fun, educational way. As story tellers read, children will be encouraged to build, sing, play and explore through original games and creative activities.
If for some reason you can’t join in-person, you will be able to take the experience home with you by visiting www.readbuildplay.com and downloading the Parent Activity Guide, full of suggestions and ideas on how to keep playtime fresh, energetic and educational.
