Looking for more simple play ideas? Follow One Perfect Day on Pinterest
When it comes to play ideas for R (5 years) I always find that simple is best. Especially at busy times like when I’m cooking dinner or trying to finish the housework, I need something that I can put together fast and with a minimum of fuss. This week on Tuesday Tots I’m featuring fifteen fun and simple play ideas for kids. From sensory play with play dough, to imaginative play with cardboard creations or easy outdoor chalk games, these activities take little to no effort to set up and will provide lots of fun and learning opportunities. I know R will particularly love the DIY Chalk Rake from Laughing Kids Learn (seriously, how genius is that?). I hope you find something to inspire you in this list.
