The Art of the Invitation Workshop

A virtual workshop to support parents to easily engage their kids in self-directed play, in under 60 seconds.


Let’s be honest - being a parent is busy and very few of us have the time to set up (and tidy!) elaborate play stations and activities.

Which is why invitations to play are lifesavers!

What is an invitation to play? 

It’s literally that - an invitation, to a child, to play! 

It’s NOT an invitation to play with a zoo, a safari, a forest, a fairy world, a unicorn world, a remote control car, or a fancy schmancy setup that takes you their entire naptime to prepare. 

Rather, it’s an invitation to a child to do, imagine and create whatever it is they desire, with a little bit of guidance from you!

  • It’s quick and simple.
  • Less time and input from you.
  • More engagement from them.

Aaahhhh. How great does that sound?!

So much joy, fun and engagement for children comes from the process of creating and imagining what COULD BE, not so much in playing with an entire world that YOU have created for them.

With invitations to play, the less you do, the more they play! In fact, the simpler the better!

Parents who utilise invitations to play:

  • Have more time in their days
  • Feel less exhausted and stressed
  • Are supporting their children to be independent creative thinkers
  • Have more energy to be completely present with, and attentive to, their children.

In this 90 minute workshop, I will teach you how to set up invitations to play, in under 60 seconds, that will attract your children's attention AND keep them engaged.

You’ll walk away from the workshop with a toolkit of invitations that you can use, straight away in your home, that will entice your kids to play independently and keep them captivated for hours! 

No creativity is necessary!

Invitations to play are something anyone can do!
