Building a Better World
Starts at Home

We believe in slowing down and playing games, and bringing back good old fashioned fun and values. We believe Building a Better World starts at home with the experiences, lessons, love, adventures and creativity we share there.

Let’s take back our family time, let’s raise kids doing the things we used to do, let’s say no to over scheduled, stuck indoors, extra homework, video game lives- let’s begin to live again.


We believe family comes first. We believe in making time for play and that play isn’t just for kids. We believe learning can be fun and goes far beyond the classroom. The most important lessons usually happen at home or out in the world. And we think homework is overrated. We want kids to get outside and experience nature or play games like hop scotch.

Adventuring is Calling
Make Time for Play

We think the world would be a better place if we all make more forts, have more picnics, use purple crayons, find new adventures and take life just a little less serious. We believe parenting is the greatest adventure of your life.

We believe family should be fun, and love, sharing and connections, togetherness and adventures, magical times and happiness, silliness and creative ideas, playful things and heartfilled service, enjoyable and full of life lessons. We believe faith belongs in our homes and hearts.
