Heather and I talked about how play can help your child's development and ways that families can find fun ways to play together.
She had some rad stories about her toddler's playful spirit that I loved hearing. Heather mentioned a part of my book that her and her family could totally relate to: the totally spontaneous dance party. I swear this is something not just the little kids will love. Your older ones might roll their eyes initially, but will definitely jump in eventually.
The perfect recipe for a kitchen dance party:
- Pre-made playlists packed with pop music everyone knows the words to. Make sure each family member has their fave song or two on there.
- Have "microphones" within reach like your spatula or whisk
- Add a mini-operated disco ball to your kitchen decor. Nobody can resist a disco ball.
