This week, I got a sneak peek at the final version of the Play Day Kit. And I have to tell you...It is just. So. Cool! I had to share it with you.
With the blessing of our marketing department, I borrowed the kit for an hour, took some photos, and checked out all the cool stuff inside. I knew it was going to be awesome. I'd heard all about it beforehand and knew exactly what was going to be in it. But when I actually saw how it was put together, and got to look through the Play Day cards...it made me instantly jealous of those folks who are planning a Play Day and will be getting one of these for free.
So what's in the kit? Let's take a look.
First off, there's the box. One thing I wanted to point out is that if you decide to accept donations at your Play Day, the box doubles as a donation box. There's a pre-punched hole where people can contribute. Check it out:
When you open the box, you see all kinds of goodies:
I was impressed. You really can do a full Play Day with just the contents of this box! Here's a picture of the stuff all laid out:
So here's what you get:
My favorite part of the kit is, admittedly, the deck of cards. They're large, durable cards with instructions for so many cool games and ideas. Here's a close up shot:
So. Darn. COOL!
So how can you get one of these awesome kits for free? It's shockingly easy. All you have to do is plan a Play Day in your neighborhood to be held between Sept. 19 and 27 using our Play Day Planner. It doesn't have to be grandiose - it could just be an afternoon of games for the kids in your neighborhood!
Even though September seems a long way away, in order to be eligible for a kit, you need to start using the planner and get through all the required tasks in Mile Marker 4 by Aug. 31. Get started today!
