If anyone is interesting in organising something, contact me so we can form a committee and work on this.
Taking place any day from September 19 – September 27, a KaBOOM! Play Day is a day to gather at your favorite park or playground and literally play with your community. Think of it as a block party, a back-yard BBQ, and a service day all rolled into one—a turn-key event that helps you celebrate play in your community. Paint a rock garden, host a 3-legged relay race, or even do a park spruce-up—how you do it is up to you, the only rule is to have fun! When you register to host a Play Day you’ll be joining 1000’s of other communities in making a stand for play, and being a hero with children everywhere.
All eligible KaBOOM! Play Days will receive a free Play Day Kit—full of fun-filled games and gear, including a deck of activity cards, full of games, spruce-ups, and service project ideas—to take and use at your Play Day. In addition, the free online Planner tool is a great resource to plan, organize, and execute your Play Day. It gives you ideas of playful activities, raising funds, getting food donations, among other things. Start your Play Day planning today at kaboom.org/playday.
