Some helpful tips:

  1. Make a regular time to play with your child each day, or look ahead at your calendar and set aside play times.
  2. Play the following 12 activities over 12 consecutive days, or play one activity every 2-3 days, or squeeze all 12 activities into 4-6 days—it’s your choice.
  3. Each activity only requires 10-15 minutes, but you are welcome to play longer if you want!
  4. Don’t criticize your child’s performance, and don’t coach too much. Keep it playful and fun!
