Are your kids participating in the annual Worldwide Day of Play, an entire day dedicated to healthy and active play, and which was started by Nickelodeon in 2004?
This year, in addition all Nickelodeon channels going off the air, many other organizations are helping to get kids moving on Worldwide Day of Play 2012, including the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, Special Olympics, AbilityPath.org, USTA, NFL Play 60, NEEF, NWF, The First Tee, Safe Routes to School, Playworks, JAM, Key Club, Builders Club, K-Kids and the National Park Service.
For example, the U.S. Tennis Association has been hosting free tennis play days to help get kids moving and more active.
The Worldwide Day of Play is also a good time to take the PALA+ challenge and commit to be active 60 minutes a day for 6 out of 8 weeks while also fulfilling healthy eating goals.
It's a day to be active and play!
