Play hide and seek. Or sardines.
Make cubby houses, inside or out.
Build a tent.
Together as a family.
With crayons, pencils, charcoal, felt tips.
Tell silly jokes.
Tickle each other.
Make funny faces.
Watch family movies on video.
Watch a classic movie on DVD.
Don’t forget the popcorn.
Cupcakes. Biscuits. Bread.
Perform a play.
Play with puppets.
On a treasure hunt.
In your home. In your garden.
Around your neighborhood.
Create a collage on paper, a box, a canvas, a piece of … anything
Run a race.
Try a wheelbarrow race.
Or an egg and spoon race.
Vacuum the floor. Dust the shelves. Wash the car.
Together – it’s more fun.
In the sea. In a pool. In the bath.
To your favourite tunes.
Fairy wings optional.
To an audio story.
Play I Spy.
Play Simon Says.
Hand over the camera to your child.
Make a collage or album of their images.
Use paper plates and fingers. Take a night off from washing up.
On a trampoline.
In a sack race.
With feathers. With sticks. With brushes. With your fingers.
A tree house.
A rocket ship.
A magazine. Or a comic book. Or a picture book. Or a novel.
Out loud to the people you care about.
For hidden treasure.
In sand or in soil.
Play along with a homemade instrument.
Record it for prosperity.
A seesaw. A trike. A bike. A horse. A camel. An elephant.
An email. A letter. A story.
With your children.
A ball. A water balloon. An egg.
Just make sure you catch!
Whatever your child’s heart desires. Just be creative. Together.
