Pro-tip#1 Take a few minutes after the children are asleep. Set up a simple playscape with a few items. You can lay out a couple of cloth napkins, with a stuffed animal and an empty box, for example.
Leave it to be found in the morning.
You might find yourself enjoying the imaginative play as well.
Pro-tip #2 - Do you have a space inside or outside your home to set up some cushion to jump down onto? Setting up a place for young children to jump can help organize their nervous system as the joints (especially the hip joints) need lots of feedback.
Where can your children jump off from and safely land?
