This is one intentional focus goal that I have maintained this year. I LOVE playing with my little girl and finding new experiences for us. Sensory and messy play are favourites around here although possibly more with me than with her!
I was honoured to speak at my local MOPS group (Mothers of Preschoolers) about my love of messy play and what God has taught me through learning about the benefits of it. I think that I will do a separate series on this when the 31 Days challenge is over.
I have aimed to create memories and relationship with my daughter over less important tasks. The housework can wait but she will only be little for such a short time. I certainly don't do a big play or messy play everyday but aim to join in with her play each day. We can all start with something even if play doesn't come naturally to you.
Stay tuned for a more detailed look at play starting in November. If you are interested in more play themed posts, click on the 31 Days button in the sidebar and explore the Family Life category. There are some great bloggers writing about play for this challenge.
