30 days to hands on play

Take a moment to discuss ideas with your child about what you’d like to create and for who.

  • How can you make it special?
  • How can you make it personal?
Take the time today to create it for that special someone!

[Remember to keep it uninterrupted time: being present with the child. No technology, phones, television, computer, etc. No errands, chores, making dinner, etc.]

With Christmas just around the corner…
This is an opportune time to make a craft for someone special in your life.
Or you could make some flowers for Grandma, or write a special for Grandpa. Maybe a cousin would love to receive a homemade card drawn by them. The possibilities are endless with this challenge!
We’ve been working on Christmas ornaments to hand out at Christmas. There’s 30 ornament ideas that I’ve collected that kids can make! A special tradition for both you and your kids to do each year, but also for the receiver to hang up on their tree every year!
Here are some more great crafts to get your wheels turning:
What will you create for someone special?
Comment here to let us know what you do, or see what others did on The Play Network.

This ‘Challenge’ is meant to get you started, to spark your creativity with your kids [and their creativity!]. Your child may not be interested in this specific challenge, and that’s okay! Have another go at a previous challenge, or don’t be afraid to just sit and play with them and see where they lead you.

The Imagination Tree
will have tomorrow’s challenge for Day 29!

    We've been making ornaments. We've filled glass balls with things we've collected outside – berries, seed pods, shells, and we made salt dough ornaments. My son requests to play with "dough" all the time now!
