Do you play with your kids?

Do you actually play with your kids or are you more of an observer?

I'll admit I'm a bit of both. I can play a board game, dance with them, play a video game they like, play at the pool. Things like that.

I can't play hot wheels though. Gives me a headache lol.

Sometimes I just like to watch them play.

So are you the perfect mother who plays with her children 24/7?


I definitely am not.

I'm pretty much like you. Especially the older he gets. I hate playing with toys. I'll do arts and crafts, games, video games and stuff though.

I'm a bit of both. Outdoor activities I like better than playing with dolls or cars lol

I do both. I have two toddlers and while I enjoy playing with them they are also perfectly capable of playing with each other or by themselves. They don't need me to participate 24/7.

I do both. I love to play with my kids but I can't all the time. Sometimes I just like to watch them play.

I'm a hands on parent, I play games and toys with them often. We also go outside together several times a week, minimum.

God no. I wish I was. I try to. But I can play for about 10 minutes and then I lose focus. I just can't keep my mind on what ever it is we're doing.

I can play board games or card games or tickle wars, stuff like that. But dolls and Lego's and whatever else... They can get maybe 10-15 minutes at a time out of me and usually not daily.

Nope. I can't do house and such things. That's what the neighbor kids are for.

I play at the water park and Disneyland and hiking and stuff.

I'll do crafts with them, play barbies with my daughter, have them cook with me. My husband plays with the boys, watches wrestling with them plays matchbox cars and that stuff. I'm Just not sure how to play with boys.
