IPEMA Summertime Play @Voice_of_Play #SummertimePlay #spon

Summer is in full swing and it is an excellent time for the kids to relax from school.  Many of today's youth depend on electronics to satisfy their daily time. They do not get the proper amount of sunlight or see a need to get out and play.  When I was growing up there was no device time and I had to find things to do, though often bored, one of my favorite pastimes was going to a real park.  I know that the swings and slide would be so hot they burned the back of my legs but is was still fun.  Now with the new updated hard plastic instead of metal slides, it is even safer and more fun for my children to play.  There are a lot of great state parks and even your local schools may have a playground, for your children to investigate.   So take a little time to power down and enjoy the Earth and your children, they just grow up to fast!

The Voice of Play is an education and advocacy initiative of the non-profit membership association, IPEMA, formed to educate and promote the benefits of children’s free outdoor play and playgrounds.  Through the Voice of Play website and social media properties, IPEMA highlights the scientifically proven physical, social, emotional and cognitive benefits of play.
