I started Planning Playtime as a way to keep track of all of the great ideas of educational activity ideas that came to me while elbow deep in the dish sink or folding yet another mountain of laundry. I wanted to remember them long enough to actually complete them with my children, and I figured that publicly writing them down would hold me accountable to try them all out.
As a girl, raised by a retired teacher mother, I learned that education can be the greatest adventure. It can happen anywhere, anytime, and it can be so exceptionally fun! I wanted to pass that excitement, that passion on to my children so that they too can become lifelong learners and love it.
This blogging journey has taken us to many unexpected places. We heard from and talked with many of you from around the world, and we thank you for being here with us.
My children are part of everything I do here. They help with and inspire the activities, critique my work, and share amazing new ideas more often than I can post them. I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Have a look around. Share your comments, ideas and stories with us on the blog or via social media. We look forward to hearing from you.
