The project was an endeavor to let a child’s curiosity remain unchanged by designing a curriculum-based classroom kit with activities, games, learning aids and toys. Urvi learnt about the Multiple Intelligence theory used in classrooms, interviewed teachers and interacted with students as a part of her research. Analysis of data and synthesis of relevant information was done to proceed to the ideation, followed by prototyping developed for the classrooms.
Urvi ensured that the activities were simple, short and playable within a short span of time. Group-play is an integral part of any preschooler’s development, hence the material had to be playable by a group of 15 children at a time. The toys were required to develop cognitive abilities, social attitude, motor skills, creativity and self-expression in children. Since the target audience in the project were young children, understanding them was an exciting yet taxing task.
