Drawing Time


At Play Connect, we believe that unstructured playtime is essential for a child's development. However, it can be fun to add in some structured activities based on children's interests.

We have a variety of free activities for children ages 6 months and up. From gross motor to arts and crafts, our website provides a variety of activities that can keep your child engaged and entertained.
