Help Danimals Rally for Recess - Information & Giveaway

When we were younger we spent most of our time outside playing in the yard and we walked, rode our bikes or skated on our skateboards anywhere we needed to go.  Now a days, it's almost impossible to peel the kids off the couch long enough to get a little fresh air.  Their time is consumed with video games, the internet or texting and wouldn't dream of spending an entire day outside!  
In the past twenty years, children have lost an average of 8 hours of recess a week, and some schools no longer provide play time for students. According to the American Academy of Pediatricians, the lack of play time is a national crisis leading to a growing epidemic: childhood obesity.

  17. We live in a large complex with loads of kids, so it is not hard to get them to go out to play. They like to play ball, Frisbee and tag, or just to sit on the grass playing with toys.

  39. My daughter has a playset in the backyard so it is very easy to get her to play outside. She also loves to play soccer and kick the ball around.
