Play Together, Stay Together

“Families that play together, stay together”

There is so much truth to this simple statement and I’m sure some of you have heard this or read this somewhere before. These days, the simple act of “playing” can be lost because we all have such hectic schedules. I admit that I am guilty of this sometimes. I will go through a busy day and realize that I did not have even 20 minutes of quality time with at least one of my three kids. I try to make those days few and far between but it does happen. I believe in a 30 minute play time rule for each day – spend at least 30 minutes every day with each one of your children playing a game,  engaging in role play, learning or mastering a new skill, being creative with blocks or magnets, coloring, kicking a ball, doing a puzzle, etc. It can be individually or all together. But, the important thing is to spend that time together. There is so much that you can learn about your kids by playing with them and it helps to build strong bonds and communication between each family member!

I would like to dedicate this blog post to parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, step-parents, etc. so that you can share your “play” experiences by leaving a comment, or send an email to info@toyconomy.com if you have a longer story to share – we’ll post it! What did you do together? How was it special? Did you discover anything new? We look forward to hearing from you!
