Worldwide Day of Play 2013

Celebrate Worldwide Day of Play with Nickelodeon and NYRR!

On Worldwide Day of Play we want everyone to get out and get active. In New York City there are special events all week long that conclude with a huge celebration on September 21 in Brooklyn's Prospect Park. Click here for event details and free tickets. NYRR has a limited supply as well. Click here for availability

Not in New York City? Host your own Worldwide Day of Play event!

NYRR's free games and activities can help you host a fun day that gets kids moving. Check out our event guides to plan a field day or fun run OR pick your favorite activities from NYRR's Running Start. We'll help you get started:

  1. Get muscles warmed up with Work It.
  2. Start with a gentle activity like Lunch Moves where kids create a dance about healthy food.
  3. Transition to Animal Tag, one of our most popular activities where you just need a little imagination for a lot of fun.
  4. Pick up the pace with Obstacle Medley. This relay team game can be tailored to a variety of ages and athletic abilities.
  5. Take some big breaths and relax in a cool down with Cool It
