Oh no - we've closed the virtual doors!
We're busily creating playful memories with our existing members. But never fear, tap the button below to get your name on the wait list so you don't miss out next time!
Are you ready to slow down and find magical moments to connect with your children?!
Through purposeful play using things you already have around the house, we can nurture our children's development and create deep and meaningful connections together.
Now is the perfect time for parents to prioritise connecting with their children through play.
There's no denying that as parents, we're struggling to find time in our busy schedules to prioritise play. Yet, the LEGO Foundation recently conducted their Play Well Report (2018) and found that when children and adults regularly play together, their perceived wellbeing and overall happiness increases!
They found that the biggest barrier around making time for play was just not 'having enough time in the day.' As a parent, our job is never done, and I totally get that. However, if you crave more connection and quality time with your children, sometimes we just have to prioritise it and schedule it in.
You're craving more quality time with your kids but there are so many things on your mind. You're constantly asking yourself 'Am I doing enough?' and feeling guilty because...
I quickly set this up and OMG it just changed her mood instantly!
This morning my little one was having some BIG BIG feelings...a few days I saw Casey posted this activity for tricky days so I quickly set up this play invitation and OMG it changed her mood instantly! Quick and easy and she had a great time! I am always so grateful for this Little Play Club community and all the wonderful ideas!

When you're able to find little moments to connect with your children during even the busiest of days, you're filling their love buckets right up (and heck, yours too!).
When everyone is feeling connected, you can move through the less-fun parts of your day with more ease and confidence while creating some pretty special memories you'll treasure for a lifetime.
These incredible moments of connection are life-changing for your little learner. They build your child's sense of self worth and confidence, even in the moments you're not together. At its very core, connection is about love...the strongest emotion of all human existence!
When we welcomed our second baby to the family, I suffered from a serious case of the guilts!
It used to be just me and my toddler, Lilly. My little BFF.
We'd spend all day together just the two of us. I loved connecting with her through play and I'd prepare all these fun activities to enjoy together. We had all the time in the world!
But when our second little baby named Elliot came along, I suddenly felt so stretched thin. I missed my 1:1 time with Lilly.
I felt like she was getting the leftover parts of me because this newborn baby wanted to breastfeed all day long and be cuddled to sleep so I didn't have much left in my cup to pour back into Lilly and goodness me was I feeling guilty.
I quickly realised that if I created micro-moments of connection between my toddler and I, the rest of our day flowed so beautifully.
I needed to find activities I could prepare for her in just a few minutes so we could dive right into the connection time when baby Elliot cat napped for 30 minutes - if I was lucky!
I started sharing the simple invitations that we enjoyed together on Instagram and quickly grew a following of over 100 000 parents and educators from all over the world who tried my ideas and created loads of incredible memories with their little learners just like I had.
But that was just the start. There was so much more to creating a playful home than just replicating some fun ideas on the internet. So I created my own framework inside my Little Play Club membership which has now supported thousands of parents in totally transforming play in their homes!
And now I'd like to share my framework with you inside the Little Play Club!
Casey has helped me connect and be more present with both my kids.
I started working with Casey firstly for my 2 year old. We had welcomed our new baby into the family and TV was the go to...I thought I had to have every new and sparkly toy and now I see that the best toys are those that aren't toys at all (e.g. a cardboard box). Casey has saved my sanity!

Play so easy that you can use what you've already got at home!
He's been happily playing for over an hour!
First we made play dough together...we added some shells and rocks we had collected from the beach and a pack of ocean animals. We've played with play dough in the past, but it was always the same cutting and rolling.
He's been happily playing for an hour! Pretty happy with all this free play considering it only took 5 mins to set up!

When we focus on the quality time over quantity of time...
There's no denying that when we purposefully spend time with our children to fill their buckets, the rest of our day runs so much smoother.
But not every parent loves to sit and play monster trucks all day long. Similarly, not every parent loves to dive deep into a tub of sensory rice or sit and play for hours on end.
Every family can use our framework to make subtle tweaks to find more time for play in their busy days - even when you've only got 30 mins!
Expert workshops, mini series and demos to support you along your playful journey - ready to binge like your favourite TV series!
Want to learn how to create a purposeful play space that will encourage and nurture creative, independent play? Maybe you're wondering what kind of fine motor skills you should be working on or how to support your toddler's language skills through play?
Our video library is filled with 100+ videos you can watch whether you've got 5 minutes or 40 minutes, and they're all captioned so you can watch while you put your little to bed!
We've covered topics such as childhood development; play space storage and organisation; supporting independent play; developing fine motor skills; and play routines and making time for play; play demonstrations; play schemas and more!!
From birth to age 5, your child's brain grows and develops more than any other time in their life!
I've developed the Cycle of Play as a way to continue making adjustments to suit the ever-changing needs of your little learners. These stages are what the resources inside the Little Play Club are founded upon and will guide you as you uncover what you want play to look like in your home!
With each stage in your child's early years, different challenges come to light. You might be struggling with independent play when you bring a new baby home, or wondering how to help your preschooler get ready to start school.
You might only need to make a few subtle changes to your approach to play which will see your little learner growing in confidence and independence and see you creating a beautiful connection through play! We'll be right there beside you to support you!
The Little Play Club is like no other play membership out there.
This isn't just a simple library of play ideas thrown together to save you a bit of time.
It's not a course with a tonne of long video lessons that'll take hours of your precious time to consume with endless jobs and tasks to add to your ever-growing to do list.
We're about slowing down and finding micro-moments in our day to connect with our children in a way that aligns with your family and your goals for play.
Imagine if you could...

It's so easy to feel like we aren't doing enough...I love that the focus of the Little Play Club is not 'doing more' but being present.

You've got questions? I've got answers!
There are absolutely no lock-in contracts so you are free to cancel your membership and cease payments whenever you like! Just keep in mind that your current member pricing is only available for as long as your account remains in good standing so if you decide to come back, it will be at the current rate.
We're a friendly bunch and welcome members from all over the world so we would LOVE to have you join us!! The membership price is shown in AUD so just check your bank won't charge you fees for handling international currencies.
Our children grow and develop at an amazing pace during their first five years so there is never a time too soon to start considering how to create a playful home. In fact, we have a mini series dedicated to babies to get you off to a kickin' start! You might find the printables won't be relevant for a little while but there are so many incredible resources waiting inside that are perfect for your newborn right from birth up to age 7!
You can spend 10 minutes browsing our Play Directory on a Sunday afternoon and have all your playful activities planned for the whole week! This is designed to save you time not add more to your plate. The beauty of a membership is that you have access to everything you need to use in a way that works for you and your unique family whether you've got 2 hours or 20 minutes.
In terms of the video library - do you sit and watch every movie on Netflix? Probably not! Instead, you tune into the bits most relevant to you on the vening you choose to sit down with your ice-cream and your dressing gown hehe - our membership is the same! It's not designed to sit and consume everything in one go. It's a curated library of resources and tools to support you at whatever stage you're at!
You're free to cancel your membership at any point - just give us 48 hours notice before you're due to be billed again!
However, your monthly or yearly fee gives you access to both the Little Play Club Play Portal and bonus Facebook Community so once your membership has been cancelled, you'll lose access to everything. You can join again later but it will be at the current rate at that time and you will lose any perks you had with your previous subscription.
Not at all! In fact, I encourage you to make the most of the things you already have. You'll be surprised at how much play potential is hiding in your kitchen already!
Many parents head to the local library to borrow books for any themes they choose to explore with their little learners. Others love to head to the dollar store and grab bits and pieces to keep things fresh - but I am confident you have everything you need to get playful with your little learners already!
There certainly are a heap of ideas all over the internet you can get great ideas from...
But browsing social media and stumbling across an idea that looks fun isn't going to work. You need to learn the foundations so that every activity you try is a success! You're not going to need to hope and wonder whether ideas are appropriate because our Play Packs and activities are thoughtfully designed by an early years teacher to be developmentally appropriate - and not only educational, but loads of fun too!
Everything is planned for you - just watch a masterclass or browse our directory, choose your activities and you'll have your play planned for a while week in just minutes - and the best bit? You've got everything you need in your home already!
YES! While some of the membership perks are only on Facebook (like our wonderful private Facebook Community and monthly challenges) - you can still join the fun because everything we create for our members is loaded right up into the Play Portal! However, some members have decided to create a Facebook profile just so they can join the Facebook group!
We would love your partner to join our community! When you're both on the same page, parenting becomes so much easier. However, other family members, work colleagues, your mother-in-law or your BFF cannot be added to the community. They will need to purchase their own membership.
If you work in an early education service and would like to purchase a subscription for your centre, please email us for a customised commercial use license for your staff.
I get caught up in my daily routine, that I often don't stop and enjoy those little moments.
The Little Play Club has firstly given me encouragement when I'm feeling like failure...it has given me a community to chat through ideas, it has given me a bank of ideas to use, and the confidence to try something new.
