Global School Play Day was created to raise awareness about the necessity of unstructured play. February 4, 2015, was the first annual Global School Play Day for students in schools around the world, over 60,000 students from 6 continents participated in the inaugural year! Peter Gray, a researcher at Boston College, argues the case that today’s kids do not grow up playing and that has impacted them in many ways. It is time we return the gift of play to this generation.
