Playful June: Our Weekly Play Rhythm

In a world full of noise “Do this, do that”, click bait titles, glamorous images, smiling, happy children playing with the latest craze it is easy to get overwhelmed by it all. Playful Matters is about less, finding space, simple moments, using what’s around us already, most importantly, Playful Matters is about children and what childhood should be about.

If you’re part of the Playful Matters Community it is because you are also passionate about play. Simple, natural play. At Playful Matters in June it is a time to refocus, rethink and re-evaluate that we are still holding the space for our children with simple play. Will you join me this month in a special challenge Playful June Simple Moments?

How to join Playful June

Join in with the play ideas on Playful Matters

Each day in June there is one suggested Simple Moment play prompt. I’m inviting you to join in and explore the idea with your own children.

Share with the Playful June Community

My favourite place to hang out online is over on Instagram @PLAYFULMATTERS. There are hundreds of like-minded mums, teachers and childcare professionals who gather there to share their simple playful ideas. So – will you come and join us? Hop on through and say hello. Tell us about your children. And stick with us through the month (and beyond) and share the simple play you’re enjoying with your children. Tag your photos with #playfuljune

I would also love to have you over on the Playful Matters Facebook Page. It is here that you will find the daily prompts.
