Improv for Parents

I had a ton of fun last night getting to work with parents and kids at an Austin Elementary School. The PTA hired me to do some parent educational content teaching grown ups how to remember to play with their kiddos. And sharing some improv games that might be new activities to try at home. We were able to get kids and parents laughing and playing together. Even the principal joined in! So I created a new Family Improv Handout to share with them and anyone who wants to be more present and playful with their kiddos. The handout gives tips on how to set up the playtime, get in the right mindset, plus games that are good for active physical play, quiet dinner table or car play, and even some sweet bedtime activities to settle your little one down to sleep.
