My favourite day of the week: I love seeing what you’ve all been playing. This month I’m also inviting you to try something different. On the last Friday of the month the Play Academy is going to have a theme. I’d like to keep the focus on child-led play so I’m going to keep the theme very general, for you to interpret as you wish. I thought I’d introduce a theme once a month to firstly give an encouragement to try something new or different, that maybe you don’t often try with your children. Also, the themed  link-up will be a fantastic resource for us to use when we’re looking for an idea on that topic: so if you need inspiration you can head over to the Play Academy archive for that topic and you’ll find lots of wonderful ideas from families round the world. What do you think – will you join in? (Hope you will!)

The theme for the Play Academy on Friday 29th October is…….  MESSY PLAY!

This week’s link-up is open for all kinds of play, as are the next two weeks, but on Friday 29th October the link-up will be for all your Messy Play ideas. Old posts are very welcome too, so please come along then and add any messy play idea, activity or recipe.

Will you share a play idea with us this week?

I’d love to encourage more people to join our link up and benefit from the play ideas. Would you help? You could include a link to this post on your blog, use our badge (grab the code from the left hand column) or spread the word on Twitter or your Facebook page? Thanks for your support.

And if you’re a fan of children’s crafts you’ll also love Maggy’s Kids Get Crafty link-up each Wednesday over at RedTedArt.
