Great Pretenders Presents: 30 Days of Pretend Play - Featuring DOUGLAS TOYS FOR DINOSAUR Week

 We know being stuck at home can be hard. We also know that coming up with learning activities that both keep your child interested and help with their learning can be difficult too! 

 

Our Team at Great Pretenders is partnering with four esteemed co-host partners in the month of April to celebrate 30 Days of Pretend Play! 

We have gathered a month's worth of creative learning and fun contests for your little ones!  Follow us to see who we partner with each week for more exciting giveaways!

We have put together four weekly fun themes that will include three days of math, english, art or science activities related to each theme. Our first partner for week 1 is Douglas Toys  from Keene, New Hampshire.  Douglas Toys has been a family-owned and operated business since 1956 and has become one of the oldest and most respected plush companies in the United States.  

Have your children answer our related interview questions. To enter our weekly giveaway, you must submit a video interview of your child to our team before Friday at noon, OR for the camera shy contestant, your child’s favorite printable from our weekly download, coloured in to the best of their artistic ability! Please include the child’s age on submission. Giveaway winners will be announced each Friday at 2pm EST. Each week we will choose one American & one Canada winner.

Our 30 Days of Pretend Play is intended to help parents structure their days around open-ended play and encourage new ways of learning.
