playmatters via Lessons Learnt Journal (1)

Wow. Seven short months ago, a group of Aussie bloggers who believe that play matters started using the #playmatters hash tag on Instagram and invited the whole world to join them. Seven short months later, we have over 10,000 playful moments. 10,000 + playful moments proclaiming, play matters.

My mind boggles at the number a bit. If you have been part of the #playmatters crowd, thank you so much. It’s inspiring and so comforting to see so many families in the world playing. Too awesome.

Looking forward to the next 10,000. xo P
