Longest Day of PLAY

Join the Fun on the Longest Day of Play!
ParticipACTION is launching Canada’s Longest Day of Play on June 21st and wants you to get out, let loose, get "in motion" and PLAY!
On the longest day of the year all Canadians are being encouraged to take advantage of the extra daylight hours, turn off the TV, and get out and play in the park , schoolyard, or at your local recreation centre.

Stuck for play ideas for your Longest Day of Play celebration? ParticipACTION has developed some tools to help you get out and get moving. Try the Bring Back Play mobile app with tons of the classic games
that kids have played for generations. Or, print out the tip sheet “100 Ways to Play” and find your perfect Longest Day of Play activity.

ParticipACTION has also teamed up with Winners to bring you the Longest Day of Play Facebook Contest. Share your favourite way to play, and you could win a $50 Winners gift card every day from June 3 to June 20. Then, on June 21st, a gift card will be given away every hour from 8am to 8pm. Go to ParticipACTION’s Facebook Page to find out more!

We all deserve to play more. It’s easy to do, doesn’t cost money and gets our bodies moving while making us happy. And that’s worth celebrating.
