Take Your Parents to the Playground Day is an annual American holiday that is all about inviting parents to the playground. It’s a great day to spend more time together and strengthen relationships. The holiday is celebrated every third Sunday in May.
The history of the holiday dates back to 2009, when it was founded by PDPlay head John Ogden. He said that on this day parents should remember their childhood and youth by going out to the playground with their children. Having an active time is also a great way to stay healthy and keep fit.
You can play soccer, badminton, volleyball, and more with the kids. You can also learn new game skills, because it’s never too late to learn! The festival is designed to emphasize the need for parents to maintain a strong bond with their children. A visit to the playground will allow you to get to know your child’s interests and hobbies better, and encourage them to play sports.
- The first playgrounds began to be made closer to the second half of the 19th century.
- Outdoor play is one of the best forms of outdoor activities. The risk of developing cardiovascular disease and joint problems in people who prefer it is 35% lower.
