“I sat at the little Kindergarten tabletop… and played with the cube, the sphere, and the triangle …I soon became susceptible to constructive patterns evolving in everything I saw. I learned to ‘see’ and when I did, I did not care to draw casual incidentals of nature. I wanted to design”
—Frank Lloyd Wright (1957)

Amazing things happen in a room full of children and KEVA Planks....Attention spans lengthen, concentration intensifies, creativity is focused, voices are muted, teamwork happens, excitement builds, projects flow, children yearn to learn.
KEVA activities can be challenging to both a five year old and an accomplished architect.
Children who play with blocks tend to do better in mathematics and science.
KEVA Planks help children learn socially, physically, creatively, and intellectually.
They add a tactile element to meet specific educational goals in almost any subject – teamwork, creative thinking, ELA and communication, math and engineering concepts, art, or social studies.
