PLAY! Definitive Resource on Play and Parenting

The Carnival of Play is sadly coming to an end. It has been exhausting, but a lot of fun. I've really enjoyed having the opportunity to read some new blogs and to read some great new posts on play from some of the regular blogs that I read. I was so thrilled by the number of people that participated and the effort that went into all of the posts. So everyone stand up and take a final bow. Here is the roundup of all of the posts from the Carnival.

My posts

The posts that I wrote for the Carnival included both original posts, links to other great play resources, and compilations of your posts.

Don't miss any of the great posts contributed to the carnival by other bloggers. Here they are again, all 35 of them:

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! You all deserve a standing ovation for your fabulous contributions to this carnival. This truly is a definitive resource now on play and parenting that I hope will help many parents understand the importance of play and find ideas for playing with their kids.
