Europe’s best kept secret comes to Kspace! A game called Kapla has spread across Europe and proven to be much more than just something to play with! Kapla is highly educational and is now a major part of the most popular materials in many excellent schools.
Following on from our love of the UK curriculum, we have worked with the advice of UK teachers and created a really amazing Kapla Club!
Kapla is a block-stacking and building game. At first glance it looks very simple – it is made of identical small pieces of wood…in fact it doesn’t really look like anything special. But when the children get to work it transcends all language barriers and encourages elements of architecture and creative arts.
It stimulates logical thinking, cognitive development, perseverance, fantasy, concentration and teamwork. Kapla Club is a place where your child can learn from experimentation, trial and error, working on their language and maths as well as their skills of deduction. The blocks help encourage the use of geometry, physics and technology, while initiating the child to the world of art, forms and volumes.
The blocks (11,7 cm long, 2,3 cm wide and 0,8 cm high) are made from cultivated pine wood, squared to build without gluing, and in accordance with all European safety standards. Kapla is played on the floor and involves children and teachers. Children play happily and automatically acquire the right posture as Kapla is also a balancing game. There are infinite building possibilities, all with the aim of artistic creation.
KAPLA requires no glue, no screws and no clips to fix the planks. Each plank is simply placed one on top of the other. The planks are held in place by gravity and balance alone.
