Get Out and Play! Saturday is Nickelodeon’s Worldwide Day of Play

Day of Play

Do you have plans for the weekend? We hope you left some time for playing!

Tomorrow is Nickelodeon’s 8th annual Worldwide Day of Play. The kids’ television channel asks parents to, “Encourage your kids to turn off the TV, get up, get out, and go play.” If your kid can’t resist SpongeBob, don’t worry. Nickelodeon will shut down both its TV programming and websites for three hours tomorrow afternoon. Use the day to remind your children about the importance of exercise and physical activity.

And don’t let the rain keep you indoors. Put your kids in some old clothes and let them jump in puddles and play in the mud. It might mean extra laundry, but they’ll never forget the day you told them to get dirty.
