Each kid should get weekly time in which you will stop and focus your attention to play with them. It’s fine if you also do all kids play time, but you should have some time that it is play one on one with each of your kids.
As you may enjoy or not play with My Little Pony or Lego (Love the second one, not so much the first one) it is that little time what later on will transform in significant time to discuss more important things.
That half an hour or an hour a week will transform your life, get to know your kid in a way that seems impossible, but more importantly will reinforce in your kid that they are important and that you have always quality time to spend with them, even when you are busy and the time is limited.
During the adolescence years, you will be grateful.
i.e. You can even let them pick the activity, it can be a movie, it can be go outside, it can be ride the bike. Simply make sure it is focus time and it is about your kid.
