31 Days of Open-Ended Play

For the month of October, I’m going to participate in the Nester’s 31 Days Series link-up. While things here are hectic with baseball season, I’m ready to get back to writing and sharing things I’m passionate about.

31 Days of Open-Ended Play

Each day this month, I’ll be adding a new post in the series 31 Days of Open-Ended Play. I hope you’ll join me on the journey as I share the why, the what, and the how of open-ended play. Along the way, I’ll be sharing some of my favorite (and my kids’ favorite) ways to play. I’ll link to resources, post a review of our new favorite toy in our closet, and even have a giveaway or two.

Want to follow along? Subscribe to have the entire series delivered straight to your email inbox.

I’ll come back every day and add the links for each day in the list below.

    Just dropping by from 31 Days. I like your topic! Great ideas on Open-Ended Play!

    May I just add that one “big obstacle” to play time is the need to tidy up after haha 🙂

  6. […] As a former early childhood educator turned homeschool mom, I’m always on the look out for quality educational toys. We were recently introduced to BionicBlox and the boys have played with them every day since they arrived. It’s been a great open-ended play activity to add to our toy rotation and this review fits in perfectly with our current blog series, 31 Days of Open-ended Play. […]
