The A-Z Play at Home Series

This is a super fun series! The A-Z Play at Home Series! Perhaps you need ideas for your kids to happily play at home, and/or you are having a few weeks of staycation coming up and dreading the “I’m bored!” conversations. Well, this series is just for you then!

Play at Home Series
The idea is to use whatever you have at home to play with it in a new exciting way. This will mean less screen time and frugal fun, two great reasons to play along!

We will start at Letter A and do an activity or craft, if the kids feel like it, starting with the letter A. For example: counting with Acorns, painting with Apples, playing Airport-Airport. You get the idea? I will see which activity my kids enjoyed most and post about it on the blog and on social media. Some of my blogging buddies will also join in, so you will get lots of inspiration on how to get your kids playing!

Play along by posting photos of your kids playing either to my Facebook Page or use the Instagram hashtag #justplayathome and I will choose my favourites and share it on social media.

  1. […] G is for Grocery Store! We have been playing grocery store/shop because our local supermarket has a promotion where you receive mini branded toys(lifelike mini groceries) to collect. And it is awesome! I already have a few ideas on how to use these minis for other learning activities, but for today I’ll share how we set up shop-reusing an old computer stand, and how we played grocery shop as part of our A-Z Play at Home Series!
