Let’s Move! Missoula is happy to be part of Unplug & Play Outside. This is a global campaign to educate families about the effects of too much “screen time” from television, computers, gaming system, iPods, iPads, and cell phones. Unplug and Play Outside! challenges families to limit recreational screens for a week and reap the many benefits. This year’s theme is to unplug and play OUTSIDE. Missoula has endless opportunities for screen-free fun and relaxation. Even having kids outside in their own yard is a boon to their health and creative spirit. Want to learn more? See our brochure for the whole week and articles about the importance of “unplugging and playing outside”!
How do you get started? That’s easy…..join us for the FREE kick-off event at McCormick Park, April 21, 1-4 PM. You won’t believe how much fun it will be for you and your kids. Take a look.
This year’s event is generously sponsored by the Best Beginnings Council and a grant from the Montana Department of Health and Human Services.
Partners include: Eat Smart, Let’s Move! Missoula, Missoula Child and Nature Network, Missoula City-County Health Department, Missoula Forum for Children and Youth, Missoula Parks and Recreation, Montana Natural History Center, and Montana State Parks Association.
