A new year is here. You've made some additions to your playroom during the holidays, but your children--many of whom are spending more time inside or more time home from school-- are at a loss for what to do. You hear "I'm bored!" dozens of times a day. What do you do?
Something we love to do is create gentle suggestions for children to ward off play ennui. We are introducing something new at Oompa Toys--play prompts! Play prompts are guides for encouraging play in your home. Below is our full list of Play Prompts for January! We also will be posting a new prompt every Monday, Wednesday and Friday on our Instagram.
