KAPLA is an ideal toy for schools, given its wide application potential: for children of all ages, for free play or within a lesson, alone or with a team, to create art or grasp science… KAPLA’s single module provides an open-ended game, adapting to every child’s abilities and ambitions, and benefits numerous aspects of children’s cognitive and physical development.
For the past 30 years, KAPLA has provided teachers throughout Europe with a highly adaptable way of approaching many subjects: art, mathematics, expression, problem-solving, geometry… This unique wooden construction game offers a hands-on approach, getting your students engaged in the learning process in a different way.
Integrated into courses and programmes, KAPLA has helped generations of builders develop their creativity, and has encouraged concentration, patience and perseverance.
You are very welcome to download our free information booklet which provides ideas on how KAPLA can be used in your classroom within a specific lesson. But of course, there’s always the option of emptying a box of KAPLA planks and leaving the rest to the children’s imagination…
PROFESSIONAL INSIGHTS INTO KAPLA
“Kapla – absolute number one favourite resource in my classroom – I haven’t yet found a lesson I can’t use it in. As versatile and as genius as another click together plastic alternative(!) but with the beauty and tactile pleasure of a natural material. As essential creative classroom ingredient.”
Kathy Harris Holland Haven Primary School , Holland-On-Sea, Essex
“KAPLA planks can be used at early stages, as they don’t answer to a specific construction technique. Assembly games allow children to develop further their creativity as well as their motor skills.” Monier, C., 2015. Le jeu comme outil pédagogique au cycle 3 ESPE (École supérieure du professorat & de l’éducation), Paris, France
“It appears clearly that KAPLA supports and influences positively the development of motor skills, of cognitive abilities, of musical sensitivity, of linguistic education, and of socio-emotional awareness.” Mattersberger, R., 2004.
