The Search is On for America’s Most Playful Family with KaBOOM! and Walt Disney Parks and Resorts

KaBOOM! and Walt Disney Parks and Resorts search for America's Most Playful FamilySo many things no one warns you about becoming a parent. The sleepless nights; the many, many sick days; the overwhelming amount of worry that accompanies the indescribable love you feel for your baby; and the incredible amount of time you will dedicate to play. Yes, to just play and be with your kid. To get down to their level, and to reconnect to your inner child, because it turns out babies and children learn best through play and by example. They want you to join in that play and discover the world with them.

KaBOOM!, the national non-profit dedicated to ensuring that all children get the balance of active play they need to become healthy and successful adults, and Walt Disney Parks and Resorts know the value of play and activity as a family and want to celebrate “America’s Most Playful Family” by rewarding one grand prize winner with a trip for four to one of the most playful places on earth, Walt Disney World® Resort or Disneyland® Resort, and be named America’s Most Playful Family.

“We know that kids learn the fundamentals of a balanced, active life at home, with parents,” says KaBOOM! CEO and Founder Darell Hammond. “With support from our friends at Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, we want to recognize families who strive to lead by example, and instill the message that play matters not just as an activity for kids, but as an activity for the family, too. We hope that through this contest, more families will be inspired to engage in active play, together.”

Does this sound like your family? Then go to America’s Most Playful Family’s contest page and share stories and photos of how your family plays. The first round of entries will be received between January 28 and March 16. The second round will begin April 1, with 50 semi-finalists recording a video on why their family is the most lively of them all. The grand prize winner will be announced in May and there’s over a 1,000 prizes to be won!

Walt Disney Parks and Resorts supports the search for America’s Most Playful Family as part of its longstanding commitment to non-profit organizations that serve children and families. Today, Walt Disney Parks and Resorts brought dozens of non-profits from across America to the Disneyland Resort for “Discover Together,” a two-day symposium focused on how adults can make a difference in children’s lives by spending meaningful time with them. Disney offered training, free of charge, that will help the non-profits share best practices and leverage the tools provided to create even stronger programs of their own. We’ll have more on that soon, but here are a few tweets from the event.
