Coming in October: 31 days of unplugged play, no batteries required

Written by Kara Fleck, Simple Kids editor and Rockin’ Granola mama.

This October I”ve decided to try something new at Simple Kids:  I”ll be writing a month long series, exploring the same topic daily during the entire month.

I”m joining in with the Nester”s annual 31 days series link up.  The topic I”ve chosen to write about is one near and dear to my heart: play.  Specifically, I”ll be sharing with you a series on 31 Days As applying for any financial product has a minor score impact (see the Credit Rating guide), if you have existing card debts it’s also worth prioritising making them cheap before going for rewards by doing a balance transfer. of Unplugged Play: No Batteries Required.

Unplugged play – no batteries required

I”ll be talking about some of my favorite playscape ideas, quiet time play, art projects, active play, and outdoor play ideas for a wide range of age groups. I”ll also be sharing a few of our family”s favorite open-ended toys and how the children play with them.  I”m using this as an excuse to finally try out a few long-standing Pinterest ideas, too.

The ideas and activities I”m sharing next month won”t require a power cord or any batteries, just imagination and perhaps a little bit of preparation ahead of time.

The kids have been helping me with this project and we”re all excited to see what you think about some of our favorite playtime fun.

I”ve been hard at work at play on this series and I”m looking forward to sharing it with you in October.
