World Wide Day of Play

September 26, 2008 at 9:14 PM 2 comments

There is a movement growing around the country and companies like Nickelodeon are making it a priority — encouraging children to play more.  Why should kids play?  Because it is one of the most beneficial things they can do.  It engages their minds, their bodies and their spirits.  And although we know a lot about how it contributes to developing children, we are learning more all the time.

That’s why we commend Nickelodeon for promoting September 27th as a World Wide Day of Play.  A time when the TV’s get turned off and the computers shut down and children can engage not only their bodies, but hopefully their imaginations as well.

Check your local park districts and community events listings for their tie-ins with a great idea that’s growing.  A day devoted to play.

So parents, get your kids in their play clothes and put on yours as well.  It is a day of play and a time for fun.

    Nice idea, but we are paying for these stations. As parents can opt for their kids to have a Day of Play on any day of their choosing, can’t we? It’s called turning the TV off. If I’m paying for this station, I should control whether it’s on or off at the moment.
