I take my daughter Katie to Mommy-Day-Out preschool two days each week. Because there’s an hour and a half gap between dropping my son off at school and her drop-off time, we get to have breakfast and play a bit. Today, she wanted to play with the camera, too. So we did.

What can  you do to play today?

    Play based is the good way to go. I have a suggestion for you. This is something I have been doing with my kids for a little while (they are 3 and 5). I pick a word every night and tell them a story that describes the word. They know Daddy will only tell a story if they have a new word. Good times.

    Great post Jason. To me this also speaks to better balance. I know I am more energized for focused work time when I have my family time each day. Thanks for sharing. We do need more play in our days and I have learned to solve many problems simply by playing with my kids.

    What a GREAT video!

    I'll give ya a B+…smile, you are playing! We all should have a class on learning the “ART” of play! Here's a video for your homework: Stuart Brown's TED talk on PLAY: http://bit.ly/aGzcUZ (Test on Monday!)

    Tell Katie the “internet” says hello back! She is adorable!!!
