Wordless Wednesday: Playgroup

Written by NPN_Admin on November 30th, 2011

Playtime, Wordless Wednesday

This week we asked: What does your playgroup look like?

(Read more about natural learning on our resource page, and enjoy this week’s articles on the theme.)

Shannon says, “Our playgroup has provided so many benefits. Not only have we made great friends, but Moira has always learned better from other kids than she did from me. Here, her friend Evelyn is showing her just how much fun it is to swing. After this play date at the park, swinging went from her least to most favorite park activity.”

Shannon blogs at Pineapples & Artichokes.

From Adrienne at Mommying My Way: “Two of my best friends and I had playdates every week in the summer with our kids. This first picture reminds me such a funny time. How many people does it take to get out a splinter?! We also spent many days at the pool this summer!”

Luschka says,”When we can’t get to playgroup, we bring playgroup home!”

Luschka blogs at Diary Of a First Child.

From Christine: “Where we live we are very isolated and I have noticed that Jesse craves peer interaction. Although I am aware that a child only needs interaction with his parents until at least the age of three, this child just loves other babies! I may have to set up a formal play group next year. “

Christine blogs African Babies Don’t Cry.

Lani M. at Boobie Time shares, “This was our first Playgroup! It started with a Meetup.com group for Moms due in the Spring of 2010. We all met soon after our first trimester and almost 2 years later we are still meeting, supporting and watching each other’s kiddos grow.”

    My favorite is all the hair on a lot of those babies in the last shot! I also like how they’re more a lounge-group than a playgroup at that age. Too fun!

    Ack! I am never together enough to join in on these wordless wednesdays! Coincidentally, my wordless wednesday on my blog today shows pics of our last crafting playdate. It was chaos! I prefer the playground πŸ™‚

    Beautiful! I’m a little envious of all the playgroup fun as I’m in a similar situation to Christine being quite isolated but playdates are so much fun when they happen πŸ™‚ LOVE the babies all in a line and that they are still getting together. I watched a show about longevity and it said that people live longer and happier when they are part of a strong peer group that grow together. Happy, blessed lives babies!

    Looks like a lot of fun! I love pictures from baby playgroups, what a hoot! So much cute!

    I’ve had great luck with playgroups of different sorts — age/location based, a local AP group one, and ones with my twins club. Each group is a little different, some gel better or differently, some have more staying power than others, but they’ve all been fun and helpful in getting me and my kids get out of the house to socialize a bit. I highly recommend them!
