Many kids still have energy to burn after a long day at school. Let kids work off some of that energy, and keep them away from screens, by hosting a weekly or monthly games night in your local park. Many of us have memories of playing hide and seek or tag in the park. This is more or less the same idea, it’s just scheduled in advance at a set time.
A games night in the park allows you to host active games that often require few supplies. Best of all, games nights allow for neighbourhood kids from different age groups, backgrounds, and school systems to come together to play in a shared space. It’s a good way to get kids outside for some fresh air and social time and doesn’t require an aptitude for sports.
Here’s how you can make one happen in your park.
