Do you play with your kids? Well, guess what? In playing with your children, you are also teaching them! Through play, children can develop physical, social, cognitive and language skills.
Last year, I teamed up with two other blogs, Twitchetts and Views From a Step Stool to create a weekly Instagram challenge. Each week for 52 weeks, we had a prompt. Instagrammers would use the hashtag #PowerofPlay52 on their photos based on the prompt for the chance for us to feature them. This challenge is based on our best-selling book, The Undeniable Power of Play.
It was a resounding success with parents, teachers, and bloggers throughout the world posting photos based on our prompts. This year, we’ve decided to do it all again!
This year we have some new prompts as well as some old ones. Even if you decide against participating, be sure to follow along! There are SUCH great play-based learning ideas!

The #PowerofPlay52 Prompts!
Every activity and every time you play becomes a learning experience for your child. We have joined together to come up with a list of prompts to give you a starting point. Each week, the prompt is meant to inspire play and learning in your own home. We want this to be a fun experience where we can learn from one another and share in our ideas and fun! Feel free to take the prompt and make it your own craft or activity, interpreting it in any way you like. We can’t wait to see your creativity!
