Tips for increasing play at home. . . 

  • Unplug! Set aside time each day when all family tablets, televisions, and phones are turned off. See what happens—more than likely, it will be PLAY. 
  • Allow for longer periods of uninterrupted play. Look at your daily schedule, if you eat dinner earlier, will there be a longer stretch of time to play before bed? Where can you tweak to extend playtimes? 
  • Bring items from nature inside. Sometimes a family walk collecting treasures can elevate those play at home! 
  • Add loose parts to toys. Clothes pins, fabric scraps, buttons, rocks, or shells can easily enhance the way children play with their toy animals, cars, blocks, etc.
