31 Days of Play - Handmade in the Heartland

31 Days of Play

So if you read my post about my California trip i mentioned that when i go on vacation i get a huge burst of energy to make new goals and all around be a better me.  When i was away this time i started thinking about ways to have more fun with Max.  I decided to challenge myself to play with him everyday in the month of October, and not just in our normal sit on the floor and build with blocks for the millionth time.  I wanted to be more creative and come up with (search pinterest for) new ways to play with him.  Below is my list of ideas so far and most of them i have found from other awesome blogger moms- you can see the links if you go to my pinterest board for kids HERE.  So will you join me in 31 days of play?
