(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) Dozens of United Way volunteers spent Saturday morning, at Hyde Park, creating educational art work for kids.

A play path will feature a train filled with different learning activities for families to use with their children.

United Way Success by 6 prepares preschool-aged kids to become successful learners when they start kindergarten.

This play path is another way to help families engage in early learning activities with their kids.
"Letter awareness, number awareness, sequencing, shapes and colors. And, hopefully, the children, once they come play with it, they'll think they're having just a lot of fun, and really, they're learning and getting ready for school," said Bobbie Cronk, United Way of Greater St. Joseph

This is United Way's second play path.

The organization plans to paint them at all parks in St. Joseph.
