#PlayMatters

"Benefits for Children Include:

 

1) Better Social Skills

2) Enhanced Problem Solving

3) Team Working Skills

4) Seriously Fun!"

"Lessons learnt outdoors, whether maths, science or language, often stay with us for life. Being outdoors helps children focus, boosts creativity and imagination, and can simply be more fun.

Play is important too! Children who have the freedom to play today — making friends, getting lost in the moment, having fun — are better prepared for whatever tomorrow throws at them. Playing helps children build friendships, test their own boundaries and solve their own problems. It’s central to a child’s development and to their enjoyment of childhood."

#PlayMatters

"Playworks’ vision is that one day every child in America will get to play - every day. We are changing school culture by leveraging the power of safe, fun, and healthy play at school every day. We create a place for every kid on the playground to feel included, be active, and build valuable social and emotional skills. We offer an essential opportunity for children to explore their imaginations, to connect with other kids, and to stretch and grow physically, emotionally and socially."

The PlayBook:

"We create learning experiences rooted in the principles of game design—experiences that simulate real world problems, and require dynamic, well-rounded solutions. We support teachers and other learning leaders in making learning irresistible—creating for students a powerful need to know, and a hunger to learn more. We believe in making learning relevant—to the technologies that shape our kids’ lives, the passions that fuel their ambitions, and the demands of life in the 21st century."

"Whether you’re looking for outdoor lesson ideasresources to encourage others to get involved, or guidance on making outdoor learning and play part of every day, you’ll find it here"
 

"KaBOOM! works to bring balanced and active play into the daily lives of all kids, particularly those growing up in poverty in America. We do this by creating great places to play, inspiring communities to promote and support play and driving the national discussion about the importance of play in fostering healthy and productive lives."

"PeaceMakers help children explore their thoughts and emotions in daily, playful ways, building emotional intelligence in as little as five minutes a day."

About Generation Mindful:

"Generation Mindful was founded by mom, therapist, and parent educator Suzanne Tucker. The idea for the company came to her when graduates of her positive parenting classes were asking for help taking connection based parenting back into their everyday lives, especially for the times they were feeling stressed or their kids were acting up, not listening, etc.

Suzanne wanted to help these families bring mindful parenting into everyday life in practical ways that brought results; playful rituals that left parents and children alike feeling more, and Generation Mindful was born."
