I LOVE these and so does my 1st grader. we had a picnic in the living room last week and made marshmallow structures. It is especially great for a mom/teacher like me who isn’t very creative.

Thanks so much!

So glad you are enjoying them!

Thanks so much for sharing these each month. They are so helpful to my daughter when she says she doesn’t know what to do we refer to list that hangs on the refrigerator. I am even thinking of starting a binder with each month in them so we can go back and do some old favorites too. Thanks again…happy playing to you and your little ones too!

A binder is a great idea! My 8-year-old was just asking me for copies of all the months so she could make a book of ideas. Thanks for letting me know you are enjoying them!

I’m so glad you’re doing more! Great ideas!

Thanks, Melissa! :)

I am thrilled with your playful ideas. I am sharing them monthly with other homeschooling moms. I would love to have a “button” to link to the playful ideas from my blog. :)

Amy March 2, 2011 at 5:55 pm

Hi Jessica – I’m so glad you are finding the monthly downloads “share-worthy.” I’ll see what I can do about a button… :)

Thanks! :)

We love these! Thank you so much for doing them. Especially on the days that I didn’t sleep well (our younger kiddo hasn’t gotten the hang of sleeping at night yet), seeing ideas on the fridge are a HUGE help and the mix of ideas are great (we played zoo the other day). It’s also motivated me to jot down other ideas and post on the fridge for the moments (ahh, if only they were just moments) when I’m not able to think of something on the spot and also include ideas for the younger one (a toddler).

Anyway, please know these are VERY appreciated as is the entire site!!

Hi Lisa – I’m so glad you are enjoying the ideas and that this is inspiring you to keep your own list. I do the same thing! Thanks for taking the time to comment. :)

Thanks for sharing all of your great ideas. We’ve had fun and they have helped us through the long cold winter!

I am in love with your Ways to Play series. My 4yr old often looks at the sheet, hanging on the fridge, and asks, “What does #__ say?”. Or, “Can we do #__ today?”. Thank you! We are loving it!

I printed the March sheet and put it on the fridge. My six-year-old saw it and said “I could make a carnival with all of these!” She set up all the stations herself. Thanks for helping us play!
