Let’s Play provides parents and grandparents with fun ideas for keeping babies and toddlers entertained and learning, especially during daily routines like commuting time, chores, bedtime and bathtime, mealtime, shopping. There are also “boredom busters” for any time. Parents can search activities by age (0-18 months, 18-36 months, and 3-5 years), tag favorites, and share activities via social media. All of the activities reflect children’s typical skills at each age and are designed to support development in the context of play and family routines. Let’s Play was developed by ZERO TO THREE, a national nonprofit organization focused specifically on the healthy development of babies and toddlers.
