1,440 Minutes. Take a few to play.
It is a happy talent to know how to play. Ralph Waldo Emerson
What do you do for fun? If you’re anything like us, that may be a hard question to answer. Fun? Who has time for fun?
But here’s the thing. . . We think Dr. Stuart Brown puts it best. “Play energizes and enlivens us. It eases our burdens. It renews our natural sense of optimism and opens us up to new possibilities.” Who couldn’t use more optimism, openness, and new possibilities?
That’s why we’re dedicating the month of March to play.
We’ve created a Photo Scavenger Hunt based on March’s Play theme. So grab your cameras and camera phones and join us. Get creative. Try a new angle. Get up close. But most of all, HAVE FUN!
We’ve created the hashtag, #takingtimeforplay, for @papercoterie Instagram and Twitter followers to share all the ways they’re having fun this month. Facebook followers can share their photos on the Paper Coterie Facebook page with the same hashtag in the comment field. You can also hashtag the prompt, ie. #smile. We’re also playing on Pinterest this month.
We are giving away a $150 Visa Gift Card each week to one lucky random person who posts to spend on something fun. Even more fun? Everyone who commits to take the 31-Day challenge and take a photo will get a fun surprise. Just comment on our blog. Tell us you’re all in. You’re going to have some fun. You’re making time for creative play. There are 1,440 minutes in a day. Set aside a few of them for play. Go ahead. We dare you.
* Winners will be announced on March 7, 14, 21, and 28. Each Everyday Storyteller blog comment, Facebook/Instagram/Twitter submission with the #takingtimeforplay hashtag will be considered an entry.
