Fort Myers Kids Get Creative

Kids from Fort Myers will put crayons to paper and draw their dream playground, which will ultimately become a reality with support from Target and KaBOOM!, the national non-profit dedicated to giving kids the childhood they deserve through great, safe places to play. Elements from their drawings will be incorporated into design options for the playground. The community will then choose the final design of the playground they will help build on Friday, April 27 at The STARS Complex. Design Day is the first meeting that brings the community together to plan out all aspects of the playground build project and to factor in the ideas from the kids who will benefit from the new playspace. This playground is part of a broader effort led by Target and KaBOOM! to meet an urgent need to make play the easy choice for kids and families. It will be the 37th build led by Target. Through this partnership, Target and KaBOOM! are creating an oasis where kids feel valued and loved, and where their potential is supported, nurtured and celebrated. 4:00-5:00pm - Kids design their dream playground 5:30-7:30pm - Community volunteers participate in planning meeting
