Need Ideas- what to call choice time

In the morning I have an open-ended playtime that I call Center Time. I want to have a time in the afternoon toward the end of the day where the kids can choose from certain activities (not necessarily centers like blocks, pretend play, etc.) but instead certain projects/games/fun activities. Sometimes they will need to use that time to finish up work/projects. I want t to use this time to work with kids individually as well, so I don't want to call it "Choice Time" because they may not really have a choice in what they do! Any ideas/thoughts on what to call it that makes sense? I already use the term Activity Stations for my literacy stations so I don't want to use that. I want it in kid-friendly language.

Choice time

I called it Discovery Time. It was a privilege or earned time.

Tried hard to let everyone have some of this time for a choice activity, including kids that worked with me. Exception was for the one or two that didnít finish daily work; they used that time to catch up.
