Worldwide Day of Play at The Woodlands Children’s Museum


Worldwide Day of Play at The Woodlands Children’s Museum

A full schedule of fun planned, Saturday, Sept. 20


THE WOODLANDS, TX – Sept. 2, 2014 – The Woodlands Children’s Museum is the place to be on the Worldwide Day of Play — an annual event designed to encourage children and parents to turn off the television and go play.

The event will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 20. The day of play is included in the price of admission, which is $5 for ages 2 and up.

The Worldwide Day of Play will feature hoola hoops, parachute play, hopscotch, games and a fitness session prepared by Gold’s Gym. Karate instructor Vincent Ness, with United Studios of Self Defense, will also be providing a session for attendees.


There will also be a fun play area called “Ball is Back!” – a classroom filled with 200 beach balls, disco balls and dance music. Parents and children are invited to come in, dance and toss balloons.


“Nickelodeon started the Worldwide Day of Play by going completely dark for three hours, taking down all of its programming and shutting down its websites,” Angela Colton, the museum’s executive director explained. “The message is simple and so compatible with our mission – get up, go out and play!”


Colton added that the Worldwide Day of Play has resulted in children pursuing more active and healthy lifestyles.


“As a partner with Let’s Move, the White House initiative addressing childhood obesity, Worldwide Day of Play is something that the museum wanted to support,” outreach coordinator Kara Portilla added. “We want families to join us Saturday and just play together.”


Located at 4775 W. Panther Creek Drive, Suite 280, in The Woodlands, 77381, The Woodlands Children’s Museum has a full calendar of exciting activities, recommended for ages 7 years and under. Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times. To learn more, visit or call 281-465-0955.
