Welcome to the Playing Station!
Every weekend Ayai Media Bishkek creative group organizes interesting educational games for children of the city. Playing Station (“Станция Игровая” in Russian) is a playground where children play different games from around the world, find new friends, and spend their free time usefully.
Strolling on a Saturday evening in Dubovyi Park, I noticed a merry company of children and adults, who were passionately discussing something, drawing and playing. Coming closer, I found out that these entertaining games for young Bishkek residents were organized by the initiative group of young people. Playing Station is a “live” playground, the purpose of which is to “tear children off” the computers, and to develop in them a love of active games outdoors.
“Nowadays children are increasingly spending their time playing the “Shooting Games” on the monitor, or sitting all day in front of TV. Access to the park for a walk is limited by the iron attractions for them. Through the Playing Station Project our creative group strives to arouse children’s interest in moving and developing games, so that kids were able to spend their leisure time by interesting and useful way, and to communicate with each other”, – said a member of the Ayai Media creative group, Aybek Umetov.
Playing Station was launched on August, 3, and it will be organized every weekend of August and September. Now the organizers are looking for a premise for conducting the games in case of bad weather. But while it is sunny and warm outside, the Playing Station is waiting for the young Bishkek residents in Dubovyi Park.
