“Nickelodeon’s Worldwide Day of Play all started by asking children to go completely television-free for three hours, with the network taking down all of its programming and shutting down its websites,” Angela Colton, the museum’s executive director, explained. “The message is the same as ours – get up, go out and play!” The event will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 17.

She explained the Worldwide Day of Play has resulted in children pursuing more active and healthy lifestyles.

“We want to support anything that encourages children to be fit and healthy,” Colton said. “We want families to join us and just play together.”
