Get out and play! Don't be alarmed if you turn on Nickeoldeon tomorrow (9/29) and see it has gone black. For the fourth year in a row, Nickelodeon will turn off programming between noon and 3 pm and encourage kids to go outside and play instead of watching television or playing video games. It's part of their "Let's Just Play" campaign to promote active, healthy lifestyles for children.
Events are being planned around the world (New York City is having a kids' race in Riverside Park for example). It may seem a little sad
that we have to designate a day for playing, but that's no reason not to celebrate it.
