You've graduated from the See More Play program and you've got all the steps to set your little one up for play success - you know to create a play space that invites play, you understand the toys which promote play, and you know how to prioritise connection to see your little one playing for longer without you!
But just because the See More Play program has ended DOES NOT mean our time together has to end as well!
As part of the Simply Play Together community, you will learn the fundamentals of child development and play, so that you can feel less overwhelmed by all the play ideas on social media, and be empowered with the skills and strategies to embrace child-led, meaningful play.
Just think of Simply Play Together as your ultimate toolbox to play, learn and grow with your little one!
Now they actually play for longer than one minute!
'The toy room was full of toys but I never felt like I was giving my kids enough to keep them busy. Now I'm more excited about their play! I love giving them simple ideas and seeing where they take them, and they actually play on their own for longer than one minute!'
- Sarah, mum of two
Simply Play Together is centred around
I know that we are all on different stages of our play and parenting journey, which is why I've created the Simply Play Together PlayPath.
I'll help YOU move from feeling overwhelmed with play to feeling confident in championing play, spending less time scrolling Instagram for ideas that don't interest your little one, and seeing more independent and engaged play!
So, where are you on the PlayPath?
Maybe you immediately identified with one particular stage,
or maybe you find yourself scattered across a few.
Regardless of where you are at in your play journey, I will be providing you with the exact steps to move you along the PlayPath so that YOU can become a Play Master and feel confident in championing play!
I felt like I always had to be providing new toys..
Before joining Simply Play Together nearly all play involved me or my husband. I felt like I always had to be providing new toys, experiences or activities to keep my daughter entertained or learning new skills. Now I feel more confident to let my daughter be and there are a lot more opportunities for her to decide what to do for herself instead of me always providing things.
- Paige, mum of 22 month old
'I still need play ideas for my little one, how many ideas will I receive each month?'
The beauty about being part of the Simply Play Together community is that you will continue to learn strategies to see more child-led play, rather than being the one who always has to initiate play!
But because I know seeing more independent play isn't something you'll see overnight, you will also receive a monthly PlayBook full of play prompts to kickstart your play each month - but you'll learn to rely on this less as you lean into more child-led play.
When you become a member of the Simply Play Together community, you will get access to:
I'll be adding a new Masterclass to the PlayPortal each and every month, so that you can empower yourself with an in-depth understanding of child development and play!
I know how busy parenthood can be, so they'll be no longer than 20 minutes each, and will also be available as audio only and written transcript so you can still access the content even if you don't have time to sit down and watch the video!
worth $49 /month
Each month's PlayBook includes play prompts to compliment the monthly Masterclass, as well as ways to adapt each activity to suit a range of ages and abilities.
All activities in the PlayBook are designed to utilise what you already have at home - there won't be any need for printing and laminating, or going to the shops with a list as long as your arm before you can get started!
Join me in our Facebook community for a LIVE PlayDate each month, where I share how to set up an activity from the monthly PlayBook and demonstrate how you can adapt it to cater for different ages and stages!
Ask Lycie Sessions
Got a question about the Masterclass? Or perhaps you want some clarity around another aspect of play? Well, ask away!
I'll be hosting a LIVE Ask Lycie coaching session each and every month to answer all of your play-related questions!

Just so you know..

I am confident that you will learn the knowledge, skills and strategies to transform the way you think about play during your time in the Simply Play Together community. This means that we have a no refunds policy, however there are absolutely no lock in contracts! So if you find that Simply Play Together isn't for you, you can cancel at any time. Just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we can remove you from the Simply Play Together community at the end of your paid month.
So, is Simply Play Together for me?
It IS for you if:
It ISN'T for you if:
Still got a question or two?
There are absolutely no lock in contracts as part of the Simply Play Together membership. If you decide that being part of this community just isn't for you, send an email to email@example.com and you will be removed from Simply Play Together at the conclusion of your paid month.
Unfortunately, if you do decide to end your time with us in the Simply Play Together community, you will no longer have access to any of the resources in the PlayPortal or the private Facebook community.
Also, please keep in mind that the current pricing only applies as long as you are a member in good standing. If you decide to leave, then join again at a later date, you will need to join at the current pricing which will increase each time doors open.
Absolutely! Just email firstname.lastname@example.org within 14 days of joining and I'll organise to swap you to an annual payment so you can take advantage of the two FREE months!
Trust me, as a working parent I know how difficult it can be to set aside time to watch the latest episode of Survivor, let alone watch a Masterclass or two!
With that in mind, I've designed each Masterclass to be no longer than 20 minutes each, so you can have a better chance of watching each video uninterrupted.
I will also be providing an audio only version, as well as a written transcript so that you can access all the important stuff whenever it suits you! You might like to listen to the audio in the car on the way to work, or read the written transcript while you're doing all those middle-of-the-night feeds.
You may also find that some content isn't applicable to you and your little one just yet. And that's okay! You'll be able to access ALL previous content at a time when it suits you!
The Simply Play Together community is NOT about giving you a long list of play ideas so that you can hopefully find an activity that entertains your child. And that is because each and every child is different - no child will have the exact same interests when it comes to play.
In the Simply Play Together community, you will learn how to foster independent play by catering play experiences to your child. And when you provide toys and experiences that meet your little one's interests and needs, that's when the magic of independent play happens!
But to help you out while you support your little one to play independently, you will receive a monthly PlayBook full of play prompts that you can try with your little one when you need.
Each month you will receive a new PlayBook with play prompts to kick start play in your home.
BUT.. the big picture of being part of the Simply Play Together community is learning the strategies to implement so that you can see a transformation to more child-led play, rather than you having to set up activities and initiate the play all day, every day.
The wonderful thing about the internet these days is that everything is at our fingertips.
But what makes Simply Play Together different to a Google search is the ongoing mentoring you receive from a qualified Early Childhood Educator, including monthly Ask Lycie sessions where I'll be answering all of your questions relating to play. Plus, you will be part of the most amazing community of like-minded parents who are ready to celebrate your successes and support you through your challenges - and no Google search can replace that!
As soon as doors to Simply Play Together close, I will be shifting all my energy into best supporting and mentoring those parents in the Simply Play Together community - and I want to love on them HARD!
So as much as I would love to be continually welcoming new members into our community, it wouldn't be fair to the current members if all my energy was being consumed by having doors open to Simply Play Together all the time.
Yes! You can absolutely join Simply Play Together even if you don't have Facebook! The monthly Masterclasses and PlayBooks will be uploaded to the online Simply Play Together PlayPortal for you to access, which you will get so much value from!
However some aspects of Simply Play Together, like the LIVE PlayDates, the Ask Lycie sessions and the wonderful community are only available in the private members-only Facebook group, so it might be worth joining Facebook to get the most out of your membership!
That is completely up to you though - there's absolutely no pressure to be in the Facebook group!
I would love to answer any more questions that you have - you can contact me by email or DM on Instagram, and I'll get back to you as soon as I can!
