Trade an hour of daily screen time for an hour of outdoor play this summer

This pledge closed over 1 year ago

How this will help

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.
