Yes, Impromptu Play Needs Planning

impromptu play

Impromptu means “done without being planned, organized, or rehearsed” but impromptu play needs a little planning ahead. Let us explain.


When we say “Impromptu Play” we mean adding a “play module” where you didn’t plan one:

  • wait times you didn’t expect
  • flat tire or other nuisance when you’d rather have fun than fume
  • bumped into someone and you’d rather create happy memories than gossip or talk about the weather
  • when you need to de-stress
  • when you need a spurt of exercise
  • when there’s something unexpected that you want to celebrate with a mini party like a new haircut, great news from someone, or a happy unexpected event

But in order to play, you usually require equipment to play with:

  • snowman hat, scarf & face
  • water pistols
  • bubble wands & solution
  • playing cards
  • stick-it notes, note pad & pens
  • bubble gum
  • jaw breakers
  • wobble ball
  • inflatable ball
  • frisbee

You get the idea. We keep an impromptu play bag of equipment in our car that changes with the seasons. And a small one in my purse.
