Worldwide Day of Play

Saturday, September 29, 1-4pm

This year, Nickelodeon will be hosting the 14th annual Worldwide Day of Play. Nickelodeon’s WWDOP is an annual event designed to encourage children and parents to turn off the television and play, especially outdoors.


Join us at The Children’s Museum on this exciting day to let your imagination run wild with all of our fun exhibits and activities! We strongly encourage you to get out and:

- build an epic fort
- balance on the beams
- hula hoop
- experiment with balls and ramps
- dig in the fossil pit
- create natural art and more!

Museum staffers will be on hand to help facilitate activities in our Wild Place!


The Museum became the first children’s museum based Nature Explore Classroom in Massachusetts after receiving national certification from the Arbor Day Foundation and Dimensions Educational Research Foundation. Nature Explore Classrooms are part of the Nature Explore program, a collaborative project of the Arbor Day Foundation and Dimensions Educational Research Foundation. The classrooms, which are being developed across the country, offer interactive elements such as musical instruments made of natural materials, garden or pathway areas and natural materials for building and creating art. Children who learn and grow in Certified Nature Explore Classrooms enhance concentration, develop creativity and problem-solving, relieve stress and improve skills in many areas of development.

Nickelodeon’s Top 10 Ways to Get Out and Play!

1 - Turn it off! Take those cell phones, TVs, computers and turn ‘em off. Enjoy the outdoors!
2 - Grab some friends. Because you can’t play dodge ball without a few pals!
3 - Get on wheels. Whether it’s a skateboard or a bike, life’s way more rad when you’re on some wheels!
4 - Snap a pic. Take a snapshot of a sunset, the ocean or some wildflowers—the options are endless!
5 - Build a fort. What do branches, rocks & tarps have in common? They are all the makings of an Epic fort!
6 - Take a hike. Sing a song, collect some pine cones, and explore a wilderness trail!
7 - Plan a pick-up game. Grab that Frisbee or Football and get some friends together for an awesome game of pick-up!
8 - Get Gardening. There’s nothing more satisfying than seeing the fruits (or vegetables) of your labor. Yum!
9 - Look up! Kick back and take a look at the sky…from the clouds to the stars, you can learn something new every day!
10 - Explore! The world is waiting for YOU to come explore it. Now get out and play!

On the ground, Nickelodeon will celebrate with over 4,000 events hosted by local and national partners including: Afterschool Alliance; Boys & Girls Clubs of America; Girl Scouts of the USA; Kiwanis International’s Builders Club and K-Kids; Laureus Sport for Good; National Fitness Foundation; NFL PLAY 60; Playworks; Police Athletic League; Special Olympics International; The Aspen Institute’s Project Play; The Association of Children’s Museums; US Play Coalition and USA BMX.

The interstitials, which highlight the importance of physical play in kids’ lives and encourage them to get outside and get active, will air across all Nickelodeon platforms.

In addition to hosting nationwide grassroots events with its partners, the network will also mark Worldwide Day of Play with the launch of two new grant programs in partnership with Laureus Sport for Good, funding underserved communities’ afterschool programs, and National Fitness Foundation along with DonorsChoose, which will fund in-school activities. Both grant programs aim to bring fitness and play to kids across the country.

The tour culminates in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park on Sept. 15, with Nick teaming up with Big Brothers Big Sisters of New York City’s Walk for the Kids. The fun-filled event will feature appearances by stars from Nickelodeon’s hit series I Am Frankie, Alex Hook, and Carson Rowland; Nick-themed games and activities; a slime booth; costumed characters; a Nick Radio dance party and more.

Nickelodeon is expanding Worldwide Day of Play’s reach through a new partnership with Mini Mudder, Tough Mudder’s one-mile Mud Run designed for adventure-seeking kids and consists of eight to ten fun and challenging team-focused obstacles. In celebration of Worldwide Day of Play, Mini Mudder will add a brand-new Nickelodeon-themed “Slime” obstacle to its courses, providing kids with the opportunity to be physically active while also having fun.
