Sometimes it seems like my kids have five-minute attention spans and I’m racking my brain trying to figure out the next activity to occupy them.

This is why I love the idea of creating “invitation to play” sets in various parts of the home. The idea is to offer children play-based, open sets of materials so they can exercise their creativity and imaginations. A lot of these “sets” can be created from bits and pieces you have in your own home. So inspired by these wonderful DIY sets!
