By this stage, they’ve (hopefully) learned that knives are sharp, nail-polish isn’t lipstick, and the dog would prefer to not share his water bowl with a human. They can follow instructions (mostly) and play independently.
The ‘explorer’ deck is bursting with ideas for natural exploration and independent play, all while teaching problem-solving skills in a fun and engaging way. You’ll find simple and safe science experiments, unexpected adventures, and family game ideas.

For years I’ve been screen-shotting, saving and pinning all the amazing play ideas out there….. only to find myself feeling totally overwhelmed by “what on earth can I do?!” whenever my littles and I had spare time to play and connect. Which of course meant we basically watched cartoons (and I probably pinned and screenshot more, with more guilt on my shoulders!). Enter The Play Card, my saviour! Every card has quick and easy to set up ideas using basically everyday objects. We’ve done (almost) one a day since the pack arrived and they have been so fun, my children haven’t even noticed the TV! Imagine my shock!!! Brilliant idea. Brilliantly executed. Zara, you are every Mumma’s best friend right now — buy you a coffee one day?
