Bring Back Play Funmobile

4601 Ontario Street
It’s time to make room for play in B.C! Join the Bring Back Play Funmobile at the Vancouver Winter Farmers Market on Saturday, March 28 from 10am to 2pm.The Bring Back Play Funmobile offers a great opportunity to help parents get their children more active. There will be fun games, activities, information and giveaways!
Did you know that Canadian kids spend an average of seven hours and 48 minutes a day in front of screens and only seven percent of Canadian kids are active enough to meet the Canadian Physical Activity Guidelines?
To help reverse the decline of play, ParticipACTION has launched a national social change marketing campaign called Make Room For Play to call Canadian parents and caregivers to limit screen time and make room for active play. Thanks to ParticipACTION’s provincial partnership with the B.C. Ministry of Health, the campaign is co-branded with Healthy Families BC in British Columbia, and includes the Bring Back Play Funmobile tour, visiting schools, events, neighbourhood parks and festivals to encourage kids to get out and move, while educating parents on the importance of play.
So let’s put down those screens and #MakeRoomforPlay
