I have a confession: I have a super hard time playing "pretend" with my kids. I know this for a fact because my mom is AMAZING at make-believe play, and it seems to come sooooo naturally to her that it makes me a little envious! I've seen what the "good stuff" looks like, so I KNOW I'm not up to par haha. Can anyone else relate?
I'm sure this confession seems odd coming from me because...well, I design, create, and sell children's imagination-based-play toys. So pretend play SHOULD be my jam, right? Nope. It definitely stretches me, and was a huge motivator behind why I developed the FigLittles PlayGuide!
I've been searching for a simple, but genuine, way to teach my kids about gospel principles through play and this approach has been just what I needed. It's not fancy, requires zero props or prep, and can be done anywhere or anytime that suits your family's needs. I like to use the questions as dinner-table conversation, or chit-chat on a long car ride. Maybe this would be good for you, too?
Let me introduce you: The PlayGuide includes a set of challenges, prompts and questions correlating with each week's Come Follow Me lesson. Some are more thought-provoking, but there are a LOT of silly questions that will help you get on your kid's level to warm them up to an authentic gospel-related conversation. I firmly believe that talking about "church stuff" doesn't always have to be serious or stuffy and I'm on a mission to prove it!
Now, I mentioned before that the PlayGuide doesn't require any props or prep - but it could definitely be taken to the next level with a FigLittles BOM Magnetic Figures kit. If you don't have a FigLittles magnet kit yet, I'll always include a free printable with a few characters that you can easily print off for your kids to color, cut, and play with so they can participate too!
