Play the Part 2

What You Need to Create Unique Play Areas Perfect for Your Kiddos’ Unique Interests

What do you want to be when you grow up? It’s a question we were all asked as kids—one that was so innocently answered with whatever our obsession of the week was. Maybe today your child wants to be an astronaut—they love science and math and dream to one day explore among the stars. Maybe they want to be an explorer—they are curious about everything and want to see the world, finding adventure in everything they do. Maybe they want to be a writer—they get lost in a good book and yearn to imagine new stories and characters. Inspire your kids’ imaginations with unique play areas tailored to their wildest dreams. If they can dream it, you can make it with a few simple items.

For Your Little Beach Babe

Marvelous Memories | “Ohana means family and family means nobody gets left behind,”  according to Disney’s “Lilo & Stitch.” Stock a cabinet with markers and paper and let your child pass the island time by creating hand-drawn works of art inspired by their favorite people.
