#playmatters – Come and play with us!


Are you on Instagram? You may have noticed that I’ve been using one particular hashtag a lot lately.


What is #playmatters?

I am a part of an awesome Instagram community that believes that play matters. Our #playmatters community is a way for us to connect with each other and our followers by sharing ways that we play with our children. We also have a #playmatters Pinterest board where we share the best kids activities and will be hosting various #playmatters Google+ hangouts throughout 2013.

Would you like to join the #playmatters community? It’s easy! This is how you can play too :)

You don’t need to set up complicated, expensive or timely play scenarios. Just get down on the floor and play with your kids, and take a photo of it – then share it in any of these ways:

  • blog about #playmatters,
  • post and tag #playmatters photos on Instagram,
  • chat with people who share #playmatters photos on IG,
  • add pins (from everywhere not just your blog) onto our #playmatters Pinterest board,
  • use all your social media awesomeness to spread the news about #playmatters!

Here are some ways that others have been playing lately:
