Written by Kara Fleck, Simple Kids editor and Rockin’ Granola mama. Update: I didn’t quite get the original 31 days series written back in October, but this is a work-in-progress and I’ll keep adding Unplugged Play ideas as we go.
Today’s the day! We’re beginning our much anticipated series on Unplugged play: no batteries required.
It seems, at times, like play and childhood are becoming obsolete. We live in such a hurry-up world that it can be easy to forget that life doesn’t have to be that fast-paced and play doesn’t require batteries or the endorsement of a television character. I invite you and your kids to slow down and reconnect with simple play. It is time to get back to basics and have a little fun doing so!
Each idea will feature a short post with a simple idea or two for “unplugged” play – no batteries or power cords required. Whether or not you choose to unplug from all other electronics (video games, television, computer, other screen time, etc) is up to you.
