Students building something using a RigamajigMany kids experience intense emotional impact when a parent is deployed or has returned home from military service. Play is crucial for kids to relieve toxic stress, restore normalcy and stay active and healthy.  Stoney Point Elementary School hosted an event to unveil its new Rigamajig creative play tool on April 24, 2017. The Rigamajig empowers kids to use their own imagination to build a play space of their dreams, using a collection of wooden planks, wheels, and pulleys that allow kids to build and rebuild play structures with their imaginations. This type of play can be a solution for military families to help kids have fun, healthy and positive experiences together.  

Alana Hix, Executive Director of Federal Programs was awarded the creative play grant in partnership with The CarMax Foundation and Kaboom!, the national non-profit dedicated to giving kids the childhood they deserve by bringing the play to those who need it most.  The celebration at Stoney Point Elementary, during the Month of the Military Child, was one of only 10 signature play products granted across the country and coincides with Kaboom! and The CarMax Foundation’s “Week of Play” from April 23-29
