    Table of Contents This paper describes the PhD research on designing for open-ended play environments for children aged 6-8 years old. I discuss my research topic in more detail, as well as the developed design prototype and a first explorative study with this prototype. The focus of this study was on supporting playful experiences in different stages of play. Results show that playful experiences are supported by (different) design elements throughout the three stages of play. For the doctoral consortium, I also propose my research agenda for future work as point of discussion.
