Kids Activities | Add Learning to Play
Kids activities are a great way to connect with your kids. They help you get to know what your little one likes to do, how they play and what they are learning about the world.

Here are some tips for letting the kids take over:
- Go into the activity with an open mind. Set up the experience but listen and tweak as you see and hear how your kid responds.

- Be willing to abandon any activity (but don't be afraid to try it again later.)
