Frequently, I discuss the importance of play, why play matters and why you should find time to play every day. I also have a series called Pinterest in Real Life, where we actually do real Pinterest projects we’ve found. I discuss exactly what happened, the good, the bad, the ugly and the unexpected. The goal is to encourage you to provide an opportunity for your child to play with you daily. It doesn’t have to be a Pinterest project. It could be a game, or drawing, or pretending together. And it doesn’t have to go perfectly. All you have to do is make time to do it.  Even 15 minutes a day would be awesome. Get down on the floor and build something with blocks or create with playdough!
