Play Is Serious Business at New York's Ultimate Block Party
The Ultimate Block Party
While the Ultimate Block Party is planned to be an annual NYC event, the organizers say they're looking to replicate the event in other U.S. cities, such as Dallas, Chicago and San Francisco -- as well as internationally.
We've been to block parties before, but we'd never seen anything like the Ultimate Block Party, which took place Oct. 3 in New York City's Central Park, and was attended by an estimated 30,000 kids and grownups.
Sponsored by well-known names including "Sesame Street," Crayola, KaBOOM! and Lego, the Ultimate Block Party was designed to help families experience firsthand just how important play is in helping kids learn.
More than 30 interactive activities took place throughout the day, all geared toward teaching kids the "6Cs" they'll for need for success in the 21st century: Collaboration, communication, content, critical thinking, creative innovation and confidence.
Take a look at some of the amazing activities that brought big smiles to the faces of kid and grownups alike.
