It's Playtime: Let's Get Silly!

This week on It's Playtime, I celebrate silliness!  Parents and teachers, admit it, some days we just want to scream!  It's those days you need to pull out fun ideas that will give you and your child (or classroom) a good laugh.  Sometimes only laughter can turn those terrible, horrible, no good, very bad days around in an instant.      

What could possibly be more fun then googly eyes?  How about Magazine Googly Eye FacesPlay Create Explore took a bag of assorted googly eyes and simply laid them on the faces in a magazine.  The picture above is what inspired my post today; you can't get much sillier!    
Beyond a hat, did you ever think newspaper could be silly?  Having Fun at Home found several ways to have Fun With Newspaper Inserts, including a newspaper shower!
Over at Mess for Less, little ones created their own silly version of Monsters vs. Aliens with some straws, feathers, and of course, googly eyes.  Creative, fun, and silly; my favorite combination!
