International Play Equipment Manufacturers Association (IPEMA) and the Voice of Play want to promote activities and ideas that get kids – and parents – outside. The Voice of Play is an education and advocacy initiative of the non-profit membership association, IPEMA, formed to educate and promote the benefits of children’s free outdoor play and playgrounds. Through the Voice of Play website and social media properties, IPEMA highlights the scientifically proven physical, social, emotional and cognitive benefits of play.

Do your children enjoy going to your local playground? I always take my daughters to our local park that has a playground. They enjoy being able to go to the park. They have swings, slides and much more for them to do at the park. I love to take them because I enjoy watching them having fun while getting some great exercise as well. 

Now that summer is here, it can be hard to get your kids to go outside and play. Kids are going to find a lot more free time now that it’s summer. With all the new technologies out there, kids may want to stay indoors more so they can play on the computer or watch t.v. I try to get my kids outside as much as possible, which is why the local playgrounds are a great way to get them outside and moving. 


There are many great reasons as to why I love bringing my children to the park. One of the main reasons, is so that they can get outdoors and get some exercise. It’s important to me that I make sure they’re getting enough exercise. They can also meet a lot of other children at the playground. There are always other kids playing at the playground. My kids have ended up playing with some of the kids they’ve met at the playground. I think it’s great to get them out at a local playground where they can enjoy the company of others as well. It’s always nice to meet new people. They could always end up being great friends.


I also love being able to bond with my children while we’re at the playground. I love to be able to push them on the swings, run around with them around the playground, take walks around the park and so much more. Just being able to be with my children while we can all have some fun is always wonderful.


Will you be taking your children to your local playground this summer? I hope you’re all able to bring your kids. Children love to get out and have fun, so bringing them to your local playground is always a great idea. I know my children enjoy going as often as they can.

  1. How fun! Looks like a blast. We go to our playgrounds often. We have 4 near us… We go to them when we can this summer will hopefully be a bit more. We love getting outside when we can!

  2. I gripe on the inside that my little guy wants to play outside so much. I should be thankful because if I’m not careful the gadgets will take over his desire to play outside.

  3. Kudos to IPEMA and Voice of Play for trying to get kids outdoor to play. I had always brought my boys to the playground to play when they were little every chance we got. It is so important for them to get the good sunlight and the fresh air along with interaction with other children. Thanks for sharing.

    • You’re welcome and I completely agree! I love that kids love to go to playgrounds so much. It’s a great way for them to get outdoors.

    • That’s great that they love being outdoors too! It’s always nice when your kids can play outside instead of being indoors all the time with their gadgets.

  4. My kids love going to the local park here but it gets so hot during the summer so their time is limited. Great way for them to have fun.
