It’s Playtime! : Hands on Play

ActivitiesAll Ages6 Comments

Today’s challenge is to create a reading nook! I can’t wait to make one (this is something we don’t generally do with the boys). Head over to The Imagination Tree for some ideas and more info on the challenge!

Today, for It’s Playtime, I’m sharing some of the fun things you’ve been up to with the 30 Days to Hands on Play Challenge. We’ve had loads of participation from readers, as well as other bloggers. Below are just a few of the bloggers that have taken the time to write about their challenge experiences. Thank you!

I love seeing everyone’s take on our challenges, so keep your experiences coming! Let us know how they go!

Oh, and I have a HUGE thank you for challenge participants! An awesome giveaway – an Alex Toy Wooden Parking Garage – enter to win it in the giveaway here!
