Learn how longer active play enhances a child’s overall development with Johnson’s®
Summer should be the most exciting season for students when they can finally lay low on memorizing, nonstop reading, and everything school. Summer means vacation, swimming, and unlimited play! Though moms as always have their reservation about allowing their kids to stay out too long. You often hear the moms say, “pawisan ka na”, amoy araw”, maasim”, and any other things to describe how their kids smell after playing outside almost the whole day.
Johnson’s®; who is known to be the leader in safety research, invites moms and dads to go out with their kids, be more active, and bond over their very own playcation this summer! This event encourages moms to let loose and be not worried about active play.
“It is true – hindi lang laro ang laro. Johnson’s® is a believer of playtime because of the multiple benefits it gives kids. More playtime has been proven to contribute to the overall development of kids as they become more resilient, socially intelligent, confident, and physically strong,” shared Bessie Campillo Johnson’s® Franchise Marketing Manager. “As a way for us to demonstrate our support for playtime, we are launching the Johnson’s® Active Kids Playcation campaign – encouraging parents to spend more time with their kids through active playtime.”
Johnson’s® places a focus on active play to ignite their imagination, develop their social skills and process emotions, and become more resilient and confident because of the strong bond they develop with their parents during playtime.
As an avenue for more imaginative play, Johnson’s® has built an Active Kids Playcation playground equipped to further imaginative and active play among kids. The Johnson’s® Active Kids Playcation playground consists of different play pods such as:
Imagine & Seek where children use their imagination and thinking skills to replicate an image using just rubber mats;
Fireball Away challenges a child’s balance, agility, and cognitive skills by dodging “fireballs” to get to the other end of the platform without falling;
Dragon Maze fuels a child’s sense of motivation to win by collecting all hidden items within a specific amount of time;
Little Builder’s City encourages the use of imagination and creativity by allowing children to design and build their own fortresses.
“It is important that we create safe spaces that will encourage children to play and use their imagination. By ensuring that they have this opportunity, experiencing the optimum benefits of play is just within their arm’s reach,” shared Michael Santiago of Philippine Toy Library, a non-profit organization that transforms idle spaces in communities into fun and educational play areas for the benefit of children who they consider as the reason why they exist.
There’s no doubt about the benefits imaginative play can give to a child’s optimum development. That’s why parents play an important part during this phase in their child’s growth. The parents’ role highly affects how the child perceives play so it’s crucial for them to provide children with the necessary props to aid in their imaginative play, plus it’s a great bonding experience!
