“Hey, you want to come over to my house to play?”
Those words never get old to a kid, and probably not to a mom either. But once my kiddos start to approach preschool age, I find they are tickled pink (sometimes) by themed playdates and parties. As a stepping off point for hands on learning or imagination play, themed playdates can’t be beat. But sometimes, if you’re like me, you need a little inspiration. Here’s our compendium of great play date ideas!
