8 playful ways to savor the end of summer

I had a TON of fun this morning in the plaza with Matt and Hoda showing off some great ways to keep PLAYing even though the first day of school is creeping closer and closer.

These are all great ideas for the whole family, and for kids to play on their own as well.

Check out the video below, then pop over to Today.com to learn about all eight ideas I shared, including three super simple DIY's.

Happy playing, ya'll!


The importance of play in the workplace

During one of my recent trips to New York, I stopped by the offices of marketing agency The Halo Group.

I spoke with their leadership and staff about how important play is in the workplace, and how it can lead to success in and out of the office.

Check out the video the Halo team put together to learn how play can positively impact your workplace. You can tell from we had absolutely zero fun during my visit ; )

Remember folks, play is serious business.


Let's go fly a DIY kite

Kites. A beautiful way to get the kids playing outside and tire them out as they run around in circles trying to get that thing to fly!

Instead of heading to the store to pick out something generic, have your kids create their own kites with one of these easy DIY projects. You probably already have most of these materials around the house, so it should be easy to prep for as well.

This list includes just about something for every age group and ability level. The Box and Tetrahedral kites are probably more on a tween level, but the paper kite is a super easy DIY that gives kids complete control over their kite's style.

Go DIY a kite and send it soaring!
