Scrapstore

I popped into Scrapstore today – an

“Aladdin’s Cave of low-cost, varied and abundant scrap materials for creative play – safe surplus resources collected from business and industry.”

What I didn’t know was that they also have an in house Play Team and run all sorts of brilliant activities.

One particularly brilliant thing is their Playpod.

“The Scrapstore PlayPod® is a holistic process that works with the entire school community to change both the human and physical play environment transforming play at lunchtimes.”

I was really excited to find out about the activities, the Playpod and get tour of the play areas and warehouse space. We’ll be using materials from Scrapstore for our Transformabin workshops, (along with other bits and pieces) I cant wait to get Game Inventing!
