In yesterday’s post, P is for Play, I went through a few of the ways I look at play, and how I believe it is an important part of learning for a young child.
Luckily enough, I find inspiration for all kinds of ways to play every week from It’s Playtime! (Yay Playtimers!)
Here are your ways to play in each area of Play that I outlined yesterday.
Gratefully Growing in Grace shows how simple outdoor play can be – take it to the track! Let the kids run free!
Making fairy houses in nature is a perfect example of exploring Nature! Red Ted Art combines many of the areas of play (creative, pretend, nature…) with this fun activity!
Pretend or Imaginative Play:
Or dramatic play. I believe it all fits into this category. The Simple Blessings takes the simple act of taking a bath to the play area with the kids with a barbie/doll bath!
The ooey gooiness of this paper pulp is full of sensory exploration! I love the whole series of Paper Pulp stories from Happy Little Messes!
Adventures in Home Making created and explored with watercolor resist over crayons!
Play Based Learning:
A very playful way to learn shapes with a shape hopscotch from My Creative Family!
The Outlaw Mom has fun with bubble wrap, letting the kids have at it, popping and all.

Do you browse Pinterest and pin activities......but find that you never actually do them with you kids?
I created these activity plans that are actually doable and a super quick way to be more present with my kids.
