Crafting with kids, cooking in the kitchen and preparing snacks, and doing hands-on activities are some of the best ways to learn. The book, The Undeniable Power of Play, focuses on just this, learning through play and hands-on activities. Want to engage in more playful learning with your kids? Check out the #PowerofPlay52 challenge on Instagram, and join in the fun!

A Few Extra Tips:
- if you have younger children that you are looking to engage in these play-based learning activities with, opt for Cool Whip or Whipped Cream for kids who still put everything in their mouths
- lay a large plastic tablecloth down to contain the mess
- take your play outside or in the bathtub if possible
- let your child guide the play, even if it doesn’t result in what you set out as the intended purpose
Check out more activities like these in the book, The Undeniable Power of Play, with play variations for a number of ages!
