There’s a wonderful group I’m honoured to be a part of, the Aussie Kid Blogger Network (AKBN), and they’ve started an initiative to encourage play for all children. As a group, we believe #playmatters and you can join in the fun by finding our #playmatters community on Pinterest. Have something play orientated to share on social media? Why not add hashtag playmatters and join in!
Unfortunately my phone died last week and so I can’t contribute on instagram but I’m helping support playmatters by highlighting some Animal Play activities on here and then sharing these on Twitter, Pinterest and Facebook.
