Play like nobody’s watching

Follow the kids’ lead, and don’t take yourself too seriously. When we asked people for their best tips on making play a bigger part of everyday life, that is what we learned.

We couldn’t be more serious

Play is essential for children to grow and learn and nearly as important for adults. So, turn the chores into something much more fun, try out the kids’ toys and let the children guide you on the adventures.

      It’s not always easy to find the time (or the energy) to play with the kids. Then again, it doesn't have to be more complicated than preparing dinner and adding an unexpected ingredient.

        Fun comes first

        So, playing is good for all of us, regardless of age. Best of all, the learnings and general greatness come for free as long as we remain focused on what’s most important – having fun.
