One of our favorite ways to play inside and to feel safe during a storm is to create a cozy hideout, just like many animals we know and love! Creating a hideout inside with your explorer is a great way to boost feelings of safety, contentment, and joy. Connecting the hideout with animal homes also supports your kiddo’s empathy development and creativity. Check below for more about this play invitation for a stormy day and what your child is learning when they engage in hideout play.
