I love the start of a new year. It’s a fresh beginning and a chance to take on new opportunities, such as my Laughing Kids Learn 2018 #12monthsofplay photo challenge. Simply request to join my closed Facebook group, ‘Activities for Kids’ and begin participating!
I love a good photo challenge.
This year I’ve decided to conduct a month-by-month play photo challenge called #12monthsofplay.
It has a strong focus on engaging our children in various ways to play, whilst being easy to do (hello, once a month commitment). I’m also only making it available to complete on Instagram and my closed Facebook group called ‘Activities for Kids’, as this ensures we have a community aspect to the challenge.
Life with kids is busy, seriously, who has time for a weekly or daily (eep) photo challenges?
It’s so simple, every month we will use a key word that will inspire our child’s play and then share a picture (or many) with the community in my closed Facebook group (which you can join here) or over on Instagram. How you interpret that word and connect it with play is up to you!
How can you play along?

You can also share your pictures on Instagram and tag them #12monthsofplay. Easy.
What happens if I forget and miss a week?
This photo challenge is pressure-free. If you miss a week, no problem at all. Either skip that month entirely or catch up when life allows it. No one is monitoring what you do or don’t do.
What makes the #12monthsofplay photo challenge so great?
There are so many reasons to get involved in this photo challenge.
- Encourages you to play with your child
- Share life long memories
- Encourages you to photograph your child at play
- Inspires your child to play in ways they may not have previously
- Boosts a child’s creativity
- Improves your child’s skills and development
- Builds connection between parents and children
- Feel a sense of community with other members in my ‘Activities for Kids’ FB group.
I can’t wait to see and celebrate your wonderful moments of play with your child. Play is so important for our children (and us) and it’s great to be part of a community of likely minded people who all share and value the same thing. Click here to get started and join the Facebook group now!!!
