Why get in motion
Most of Canadian kids' free time after school and on weekends is spent sitting down! Active play gives children and youth of all ages the chance to try new things, practice skills and use their imaginations.
Here are our favourite reasons to be "in motion" at play:
- Feel Happier - positive mental health is important for everyone! To help your child to feel happier, play a quick game together. You will all be smiling and laughing in no time.
- Have Fun - play provides a chance for children to be with their friends, act silly, laugh and do what they do best… be kids.
- Build Confidence - practicing skills such as running, jumping and throwing gives children a chance to feel good about themselves.
