- 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.
