Scottsdale’s Civic Center Library

Ultimate Play Date 2015


This year the Ultimate Play Date will be bigger than ever! Don’t miss all the FREE fun!

Language Play

As children play with language, they learn to express themselves with words, rather than actions only. They are made aware of the reasons we use language and how to appropriately communicate their thoughts and feelings.

Adventure Play

Children are able to explore their surroundings and discover their world, through the safety net of play.

Make-Believe Play

Children learn to use their surroundings to demonstrate their feelings or tell a story.

Physical Play

As children get up and play, they learn how fun exercise can be, and learn important social skills like sharing and teamwork. They also learn hand-eye coordination and the importance of following the rules.

Music & Dance Play

Play and music are important for the development of children’s mental capacity and intellect, helping to build language and mathematical skills. Children love to move and dance. It helps children to be active and exercise their bodies.

Construction Play

Children learn that each building or structure has specific characteristics that keep it standing. They also learn to solve problems as they go.

Science & Technology Play

As children play with technology, they learn valuable life skills that will give them a head start in today’s tech-based world.

Creative Play

Children are able to express themselves artistically and make decisions in the moment.


Fun for everyone!
