Children roll giant billiard balls at The Henry Ford Museum as part of the Play exhibit. The exhibit, which runs through mid-September, features larger-than-life incarnations of several popular games and is designed to help build children’s social skills by immersing them in team-oriented activities. In the billiards part, rolling each individual ball creates a different melody, which can be matched up with other players’ melodies to form complex compositions. Some of the other super-sized games include dominoes, backgammon, foosball and dice.
