  • I don’t think you need to buy too many things to encourage kids play. Half the time they can have just as much fun with a cardboard box!


  • It doesn’t have to cost a fortune to encourage kids to play and use their imaginations. There’s so much around the home & garden that can be adapted and used, without going to the expense of buying stuff.
