10 creative play date ideas + $50 giveaway
Friends play a huge part in our life, even at such a young age. I’m so grateful for all the friendships I have. I feel really blessed that my children are able to have each other as best friends. Yes of course they fight like normal siblings (ALL the time), but they truly love each other and have made so many fun memories over the past year. I love watching their relationship blossom.
Now that they are getting older they love having friends over for play dates too. It’s so fun to watch their imaginations go wild during play dates. I still remember my first best friend at 4 years old. We would play every single day and ride our bikes to swing at the park. There’s no way I’d let my son go on his own now. Oh how times have changed. LOL! But we love to invite friends over to play.
To celebrate friendship I’ve rounded up 10 creative play date ideas —
