For Grade: TK - G2



Rigamajig is a new large-scale building kit designed for hands-on free play and playful STEAM learning. Rigamajig gives children the opportunity to learn through self-directed, hands-on experience.

This collection of wooden planks, wheels, pulleys, nuts, bolts and rope allows children to follow their curiosity through play while learning 21st century skills. There are no right or wrong answers; the act of playing and building is the goal, not the finished product.


Strawbees is a construction kit based on one simple unit that lets you connect straws to each other. Its system differs a bit from conventional methods. It emphasis is on play and curiosity in the classrooms.

We encourage learning by making. We promote experimenting and asking questions.

We will engage in learning how to build with Strawbees through creative free play. Listen to the story and then help to solve the problem.

  • Revisit the classic story of "The Three Little Pigs" with an interactive, hands-on activity of rebuilding the first little pig's house.
