30 Days to Hands on Play Challenge;; Day 1

What is the challenge? 
To spend every day this month playing with our children:

  • for at least 15 minutes a day
  • without any interruptions
  • trying out a new range of ideas and activities
Day 1: Spend a little bit of time thinking about this challenge. What do you hope to gain? Think about your child (or children) What do they really love doing? What are they good at? Their special interests? This will be really helpful as the challenge unfolds.
I know a lot of people may be doing this because life can get so busy and they want to make more time for their children but I am lucky enough to stay home every day with Bunny. We spend far more than 15 minutes a day doing activities without interruption. The sheer number of times I have read This Is Not A Pumpkin this week will vouch for that. Instead, I want to find inspiration in this challenge, as the third tab says, trying out a new range of ideas and activities.
Bunny dives into everything with arms wide open and I love that about her. It is a trait I find many people could use more of, including myself. So, in doing this challenge, I am not necessarily looking to gain anything more than the experiences.

If you are interested in doing this challenge as well, this is the link. Let me know, too, so I can see all the wonderful new things you experience with your little ones!
