We've had some awesome guest bloggers join us recently! Here's a round-up of their amazing play ideas to help inspire some creative learning and quality family time.
Katie is a baby play genius. Her ideas are simple, affordable, and most importantly successful.
She shared 5 awesome baby play ideas for you to enjoy at home in her blog with us earlier this month. If you've got a little one, this is a must read. If nothing else, it will make you realize that even the simplest of everyday materials are beneficial learning opportunities for your baby. We literally couldn't wait to test out her ideas, with the q-tip and egg carton activity being a favorite already!
Sensational Sensory Play with @happi_crafts
This blog has to be one of most bright and beautiful contributions to date! Every activity is bursting with colorful excitement that your kids will 'oooooo' and 'aaaaaa' at for hours!
You may look at the pictures in Roshelle's blog and feel that the activities are too complicated. We get that, they look so spectacular. But we'll let you in on a secret- they are actually pretty easy to replicate! She uses items you are likely already to have at home- such as a salad spinner, glue and glitter!
Learning Through Play with @createlaughlearn
Michelle is a whizz at encouraging her three year old to develop creativity, amongst so many other skills, through fun play activities. They can often be found creating a wonderful sensory soup together!
Michelle shared with us 5 awesome ways to get your creative kid learning through play in her recent blog. Again, nothing fancy or requiring loads of expensive materials, just a Mom and her kiddo Making time Together over play (and lots of paint & sequins!).
Be sure to click the links to each of these inspiring blogs. Whether you are a creative person yourself or not, providing your kids with inviting play opportunities is a great way to encourage a play to learn ethos in your home.

Learning about symmetry is way more fun when you get to play with building bricks, especially our Pixel Bricks™! We are sharing a really fun and hands-on way to learn an early Math concept through an invitation to decorate butterfly wings.
Here are a few of our favorite April Fool's Day prank ideas we've done to our kids over the years. Most of which are last minute ideas (cause that's how we roll)!
Creative QT® co-owner, Adam Hinkle, lovingly refers toPixel Bricks™ as 'LEGO™ glitter' because they do seem to have a way of finding their way all over the floor if not properly stored. The good news is, however, we have loads of simple and affordable ways to store them all in this one blog.
