Did you know that September 24, 2011 is Worldwide Day of Play to turn off the TV and play outside! The Worldwide Day of Play is the centerpiece of Nickelodeon’s The Big Help, a program to empower kids and families to make healthy lifestyle choices every day.
I love that such a popular children’s network is encouraging kids to shut off the TV and play outside.
Did you know that…
- Physical activity can improve health, self-esteem and the well being of children
- It also teaches kids a healthier lifestyle of limited TV time and a more physical activities.
My kids do play outside a lot but I still think there are days whey they watch too much TV.
Clorox 2® is a proud sponsor of Nickelodeon’s 8th Annual Worldwide Day of Play. Would you like to participate in The Worldwide Day of Play? If so, you can take the Clorox2® Play 2Day pledge at http://clorox2play2day.com to play outside. I think it’s a good idea if we show our kids how important it is to play outside.
Our family loves to play outside! We live on a seminary campus with about 15 other kids. After we finish homeschooling my kids get so excited when they hear kids playing on the playground. We have playground equipment, a basketball court, and a large field to use all the time. My kids are 6 years old, 3 years old, and 1 year old. There is something for all of them to play with!
My 6 year old and 3 year old love to climb on the playground equipment. They love to make forts over one of the toys out there. They also love to just play soccer or run around and chase each other. They also love to get their bikes out and ride them all over the basketball court! I would love to get a kite for them to play with out there also.
My 1 year old loves to ride around in her walker on the basketball court. She can walk but she loves that she can run really fast and chase the older kids. They are always so happy to be playing outside. It is so great that we have so much space to play outside!
Many times they ask 5 minutes after they wake up if they can play! I know they love playing outside and I love that they are getting exercise and having loads of fun!
So I have shared our favorite things to do outside. What does your family like to play outside?
I think it’s great that Clorox2 is sponsering this event. I know most of my kids clothes need to be washed in Clorox2 after a full day of play!
Clorox2 is offer up to $4.50 in coupons when you complete 5 or more of these activities!
