This challenge is SUPER fun and requires only:
- floor space
- crayons/ pencils or marker pens
- sticky tape
- 15 minutes of uninterrupted play time!
I noticed how much we talked about what we were doing and that C began to tell stories about the characters and animals as they appeared across the paper. It kept them occupied and engaged for much longer than the “required” 15 minutes and we actually left it out all day, coming back to it frequently and adding to it as the day progressed, which was fun!
Now it’s YOUR turn!
You could put your paper on the wall? over a door? going up the stairs? outside? Whatever or wherever you like!
Could you add play people? cars? trains? animals? Turn it into a small world play experience like this huge interactive town we made in a cardboard box?!
What does YOUR child want to do?!
[Please remember, this is just a play prompt. You are not being asked to replicate any of the ideas exactly from this 30 Day Challenge! We hope to spark an idea for an activity and give an opportunity to try something a bit different each day and the emphasis is very much on having relaxed, good fun and a really engaged play session.]
