Playing is so important. Not just for kids, but it’s important for you – the parents or caregivers, to play with your kids. When we get down on the floor with our kids, it shows them that we care. We are carving time out of our busy day to just be with them - down on their level!
 
Toki Mats was actually created with playing in mind. Our play mats pad the falls of your babies at milestones like tummy time, rolling over, crawling and those first standing tumbles. But they are also comfy for parents, too! Cuddles, airplane, and yoga poses are a few of our favorites!
 

Children learn through play

Through play, kids make sense of their experiences. They learn to express their ideas and develop skills that help them in other areas. Playing encourages imagination and creativity! If you have a child under 1, learning how to take turns is so important! Play a game that can practice this, like rolling a ball back and forth to each other! 

It’s not hard to squeeze in each day

You don’t have to carve out a huge amount of time for play each day. You can even sneak in some playtime during random parts of your day! Try playing peek-a-boo during the next diaper change. Or turn laundry folding into a game with your kids! Sing songs with your child while you are cleaning or driving in the car. Play a game of “this little piggy went to the market” before putting their shoes on. There are opportunities to play all around us.
 

Bonding time!

Playing together helps you build strong connections with your kids. You are making memories day after day that will last a lifetime. Your child will thrive on your undivided attention while you play together + you’ll have tons of opportunities to learn more about her!
 

It can actually be fun!

Playing with your kids shouldn’t feel like a chore or something you are pressured to do. Take this time to really enjoy your kids. Time flies too quickly + we all need a little play in our lives. If you don’t enjoy card games, try something else that you enjoy more! You might even invent a game that might become a staple in your house.
 
Toki Mats is making floor play happen! We finally have created a safe + comfy mat to hit milestones + have fun. Go get your play on!
