Join the #WannaPlayChat on June 16th at 8 pm EST
Growing up in the 80s in my hometown of Pembroke, ON, I recall spend most of my time outdoors playing with the kids in the neighbourhood. We skipped jump rope, made forts in the field, swam in the pool, played at the park and biked all over the place. I have wonderful memories.
This summer Canadian Tire is rallying Canadians to rediscover the love of outdoor play! There’s a big difference when you compare growing up in the 80s to now. Technology has given us more options, but you lose that pure, innocent fun of simply enjoying the outdoors playing. Go on outside this summer and get active. Do something fun. Ride a bike. Skip rope in the yard. Go down the slide at the park. It doesn’t matter as long as you are enjoying yourself! This goes for kids and adults alike. You are never too old to play, in my opinion.
Share a video or photo with the hashtag #WannaPlay to inspire others to get active and enjoy themselves too!
If you need ideas for outdoor fun, make sure you come to the #WannaPlayChat Twitter Party on June 16th at 8pm EST. It’s hosted by Canadian Tire, Olympian Hayley Wickenheiser and Dr. Mike Evans. I can’t wait to hear their tips on how to make this the best summer yet!
