Play with AFHK!

Play is about more than just having fun—it’s an important component of health and well-being. And it has unfortunately been put on the back burner due to jam-packed schedules, academic pressures, and budgetary constraints.

But making time for Simon Says, Capture the Flag, or just pure imaginative play should be a daily priority. Unstructured time to play is an essential part of physical and social-emotional development.

Find out more and get ideas for playtime in our newest blog post all about how play benefits not only kids but adults, too.

And follow along with us over the next few weeks on social media as we explore how people play and share tips and resources for incorporating more play into into the day. Use the hashtag #PlayWithAFHK on your social media channels to show us how your family plays and share ideas of your own! 

Are you ready? On your mark…get set…play!
