Back to Play and Learn

A Day in the Life

Down the street from our house, Play and Learn has started up again for the school year. This great program is put on by the Tacoma Children’s Museum, and gives the kids a bunch of cool opportunities. For one thing it’s a wonderful indoor destination for the cold weather seasons, and it’s even closer than the actual museum location.

At Play and Learn, Edie and Gabe have had chances to play with new toys and sensory material, learn new songs and grow our attention spans with Cheryl’s circle times, and hang out with neighborhood friends. Cheryl is fun and funny, and full of great ideas to try, and the best part is she understands when we get wiggles. She gives us chances to dance off the sillies, and if that doesn’t work we can play quietly outside the circle and listen in.

Sometimes all the kids running around takes our full attention. Other times, the interesting blocks or special art materials give us a chance to practice focusing in the middle of distractions. Every time we go, the little friends learn a new song. Edie has been singing “Leaves are falling down” all week, and today Gabe’s new favorite was “Squirrel, shake your bushy tail!”
