What is happening to childhood?Covid-19 has created a “Perfect Storm” in Children’s Health. As children grow, Play “plays” an important role in a child’s development, mental
health and connectedness.

So, how can Adults help Children? There is Power in Play! Improve Physical Activity and Physical Literacy, even inside!

“It is the supreme seriousness of play that gives it its educational importance. Play
seen from the inside, as the child sees it, is the most serious thing in life. Play builds
the child… Play is the essential part of education.” Joseph Lee, 1915

Physical Literacy is defined as "the ability, confidence, and desire to be physically
active for life”


Play is Powerful! Play supports the formation of the safe, stable, nurturing
relationships with caregivers that children need to thrive.


Connect Physical Activity to health and happiness!
