Yesterday I met up with a group of moms at the Kaboom event in NYC. Beth from Role Mommy put together the day. They had Jade Albert, on hand to snap portraits of mom and family (I took my littlest and loved my picture) as well as folks from Kraft/Koolaid on hand to explain Kaboom's mission.
KaBOOM! is the national non-profit that empowers communities to build playgrounds. They passionately believe that play has purpose, and that unstructured play in particular helps make children happier, fitter, smarter, more socially adept and creative.
The event was held to get the word out about KaBOOM! Play Days. Between Sept. 19-27, 2009, thousands of communities across the U.S. will host free, fun-for-the-whole-family events that celebrate play and demonstrate the importance of play in children's development. For more information on planning an event go here.
And if you are looking for a place to play wiht your family, KaBOOM! has a play space finder. Just enter your zip code and it will give you ideas.
