Hold an extra or extended recess!
Demonstrate your school’s commitment to outdoor free play by holding an extended or extra recess. To support accessible and inclusive play, introduce loose parts; invite students to bring games, toys, and equipment to play with at recess; or research retro games to bring to the playground (skipping rope, four square, tug-of-war, jumpsies).
Host an Adventure Play Day!
Provide an opportunity for students to connect to their inner and outer nature through self-directed outdoor play by hosting an Adventure Play Day. Provide your students with a variety of natural and recycled materials, commonly referred to as “loose parts”, and transform your schoolyard into an adventure playground, where all sorts of neat and unexpected things can be created, constructed and organized.
Send us a photo or short video and testimonial of your EarthPLAY school event by June 29, 2018. Please be sure to read the Contest Rules and Regulations and to complete a Photograph/Video Release Form for each student that appears in your photo or video.
Six winning schools will be chosen by random draw the week of July 2 – 6, 2018.
