Hello, Educators, Parents, and Players of all Ages!

As the school year starts to fly by, we invite you to take a moment to explore the importance of play with us. In this newsletter, we offer guest invitations to several events for educators, Wordle strategies from the inventor himself and Bop It! inventor Dan Klitsner shares his Bop It for Good initiative.

Happy Holidays from all of us at People of Play!
