Play

I was in a #Play last night at Thrive Upstate. It was about cars, and I played Chris the pink Cadillac.

What was the first fun activity you remember playing? #52SmallThings

Think back to the first fun activity you remember that brought you pure joy as a kid. Maybe it was the rush you felt the first time you went down a slide by yourself. Or maybe it was a jump rope game with friends at school. Let’s kick off this week’s challenge, which is play, by reminiscing on a playful activity that you first remember doing.

inclusive Playgrounds

As I was growing up, playgrounds were not accessible. Imagine hearing the bell ring and everyone runs out of the door because it’s time to play, run, and make friends, and when you go towards the door, the teacher says “oh, you can’t, you have to stay in with me”, as she hands you a coloring book or a book to read as you watch the other kids were run freely on the playground or sliding down the slides. Even though I loved my teacher and she was a sweetheart, I wanted to be included and feel like every other kid, carefree and making friends along the way. However, my only friend during those hours were my books and my teacher. I felt that maybe they didn’t want me to get hurt. However, now that I am older, I realized that it is not that, it is because playgrounds that are built for fun are built to exclude us. There are stairs to go to the playground itself, there are stairs to go the slides and monkey bars that we can’t reach or swings that not are not friendly to wheelchair users. How about making a playground to include all? Build ramps so that child can go to the slides, build monkey bars with safety harnesses like a zip line, build bigger swings that fit a wheelchair so everyone can feel free and be social. Everyone can have fun at the same time, be included, and above all have fun.
