Digital Building Blocks

As a child, what was more fun...playing with a house of blocks or building the house of blocks? I was partial to building, and truth be known, destroying! Wouldn't it be nice if your kids today actually built something? Thanks to Platinum Arts, they can, and it is absolutely free!

"Platinum Arts Sandbox is an open source easy to use standalone Free 3D Game Maker and 3D Game Design program currently being used in many schools throughout the world that allows kids and adults to create their own video games, worlds, levels, save the princess adventures and quests, even cooperatively! The goal is to make it accessible to kids but also powerful enough for full game projects. With a simple click and roll of a mouse wheel users can modify the world however they want. In the words of Margaret, a nine year old Sandbox whiz I babysit for, “Press Edit and go fulfill your dreams!”.
