Hello mom! Back when you were a kid, do you remember playing outdoors with your cousins and neighbors during weekends (and even weekdays)? Me? I did play a lot when I was little! I played patintero, taguan, sungka, dama, and a whole lot more! I was very lucky to have parents who believed in the importance of play. =) I’m sure you have exciting play stories to share too! But how about your kids? Do they play as much as you did?
It’s summer! For the kids, summer also means a season to play! According to the recently launched “Di Lang Laro ang Laro” advocacy of the Department of Education, Johnson and Johnson and Play Pilipinas, active play is not all fun and games and at least 60 minutes of play promotes proper mental and physical development in children.
Let’s take a look at the photos below. Our kids do learn a lot from the games that they play!
To encourage adults to incorporate play in their children’s daily routine, the partner advocates behind Di Lang Laro ang Laroare putting out a call for moms to submit original active play games that their kids made up in order to share their fun play ideas with other children.
Here’s how to join!
- Like Baby Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/JohnsonsBabyPhilippines
- Post a submission on the community’s timeline composed of:
- a photo showing the child playing his original active play game
- a caption which briefly explains the original game’s mechanics
I am happy to announce that Shining Mom is also a blog partner to this advocacy. You may also email your entries to Shining Mom’s email address: firstname.lastname@example.org. We will be waiting for your kids’ entries!! Update: I will be giving a gift pack of Johnson’s products to the coolest entries submitted. Shining Mom just received 15 gift packs from Johnson’s to give away! =)
