Playful Learning World Tour - Alldonemonkey.comThis month the marvelous Playful Learning Ecademy has been hosting a world tour, exploring how kids play all around the globe.  You can see all of the stops and read more about the Ecademy by visiting the Playful Tour’s main page.

Today we are excited to share how we play in Sacramento, California!

Summers are very hot here, so splash parks are very popular, or playing in the pool.  Monkey also loves to dig in the yard, building roads for his toy trucks, while Baby plays in his bouncy seat on the patio.

Afternoons are usually spent indoors, playing with robot toys (Monkey) or rolling across the room (Baby).

Here is my conversation about play with Monkey, 3 1/2 years old:

Where do you live?


What season is it now?


What is your favorite way to play?

Play games, run, jump, bang feet on the floor [demonstrates]

What do you like most about learning with friends?

Learn about books.  I like butterflies.

Is there anything different about how we play at our house?

I have a little brother.  I like to play games with him.

Monkey also likes to play with my camera…

  3. Great post. We play a lot of board games here, but my daughter is almost 7.

    • Natalie, I cannot WAIT until my sons are old enough to play board games. I played a bit of Chutes and Ladders with my 3 1/2 year old when we were visiting my parents last month. He really enjoyed it but lost interest pretty quickly. Still, hopefully that is a sign that he will be ready for this type of play soon.

  4. Leanna – this post is adorable!
