Earlier this year, Elective Studios' special event, PLAYTIME, gave adults a place to indulge in nostalgia, play without pressure, create, explore, and connect.
Here are 10 ways to enjoy PLAYTIME at home!
2) PLAY GAMES
Dust off those board games and rediscover childhood favorites! Don't have them at home? Here's a list of games you can make at home.
A crowd favorite from PLAYTIME: M.A.S.H
3) MAKE A PAINT SPLATTER FORT
1. Make an old-school fort with some chairs and sheets you don't mind getting messy
2. Get a canvas or a sheet of cardboard and place at one end of the fort
3. Put some paint on a paper "palette"
4. Get paint brushes and start splattering!!
5. Let your masterpiece dry and put it on display
4) MOVE YOUR BODY
Challenge your roomies to a game of Musical Chairs or a Paper Airplane Competition.
Live alone? Invite your friends to play Pictionary or Charades while you video chat.

8) TREAT YO' SELF
Order out from your favorite local eatery to show your support for small businesses in LA and enjoy a special treat in your week!

9) WRITE YOUR OWN HALL PASS
Don't worry - you don't need the teacher's permission! Download this template, print it out, fill it in with your own activities, and check them off as you go!
Finally, remember resting and relaxing are an important part of playing. So, find a cozy corner and give yourself some much deserved R&R!
