This summer, set aside an hour each day to put down your smartphone, turn off the TV, and take your kids out to play. Regular outdoor play will:

  1. Prevent summer learning loss: Play encourages problem-solving, develops creativity, and has a positive impact on academic achievement.

  2. Keep you fit: Play is a major source of physical activity for children, and it can be for parents too!

  3. Make you happy: Outdoor play reduces stress and increases family well-being.

Tell us how you plan to play by leaving a comment below!

KaBOOM! is a national nonprofit committed to bringing play to children in need. Our vision is a playground within walking distance of every child.
