National Family Playdate

Moms across the country and even some Hollywood moms are committing to have family playtime this next Saturday May 10th. I was to share a little about it with you.

Merck Consumer Care’s Active Family Project did a national survey of families. The survey says that families average 5 family playdates a month. This would be time reserved on the calendar where the whole family participates in an activity together. Merck would like to see twice that many per month. The Active Family Project is hosting their 2nd Annual National Family Playdate on May 10th.

 I’m sure you’re wondering what National Family Playdate even is. It’s very simple. It pretty much is asking families to just do something special on that day. One of our favorite actresses Angie Harmon has committed to do something with her family that day.  You can see what she has planned along with other celebrities at  or on their facebook page. The site also has ideas for you, if you need some inspiration.

How can you help, besides having a fun family day?  Help create more playplaces for families across America by visiting the Active Family Project’s Facebook page starting April 28 and sharing one of their Playdate-themed posts.  Every post share will trigger a $1 donation to KaBOOM! (up to $15,000).
