ParticipACTION bringing play to town

ParticipACTION and Healthy Families’s Bring Back Play Funmobile is coming to Vernon for Winter Carnival

ParticipACTION and Healthy Families’s Bring Back Play Funmobile is coming to Vernon for Winter Carnival.

They will be bringing spontaneous, unstructured play to the children of Vernon this weekend in the hopes of replacing video games and screen time with physical activity.

The Funmobile will be all over town, but specifically at the Vernon Recreation Complex at 2 p.m. Saturday, the Boys and Girls Club at noon Sunday and at jopo’s birthday Monday at 4 p.m. at the Halina Centre.

Bring Back Play aims to motivate children to get up and play but also to educate parents, teachers and caregivers on the importance of meeting Canada’s physical activity guidelines to help keep kids healthier and happier.

At each stop, the Bring Back Play Funmobile staff will provide the equipment needed to engage in play and share fun, physical activities and games with teachers, children and their parents.

The Bring Back Play Funmobile also features information and great resources to encourage play for parents to takeaway.

We will be all over town but specifically at Vernon Rec Centre at 2pm on Saturday, Feb 7, Boys and Girls Club at 12pm on Sunday, Feb 8 and JOPO’s Birthday at Halina Centre at 4pm on Monday, Feb 9.
