The Coastal Children’s Museum has teamed up with Rockland Kiwanis to celebrate Worldwide Day of Play Saturday, Sept. 21 with a free morning at the museum and outdoor activities and demonstrations that will encourage kids and to get outside and play.

With free admission to the museum between 10 a.m. and noon, there is little stopping kids of all ages from getting active outdoors with hula hooping, sack races, tug of war and face painting all made possible with the help of the Rockland Kiwanis volunteers and planners.

In addition to the field day fun, families will be able to sample Cross Fit Kids with Teel Foster from Cross Fit Crossover in Thomaston and a short demo of a Zumba Kids class at 11 a.m. with Zumba instructor Emily Lawry. Cross Fit Kids is an age scaled workout that builds cardiovascular and respiratory endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, speed, coordination, agility, balance, and accuracy. The Zumba Kids program is a dance-fitness party for young Zumba fans ages 7-11, where they can play it loud and rock with friends to their own rules. This program features age-appropriate music and moves that get kids movin’ to the beat. It’s all about feeling fearless on the dance floor, reinforcing the idea that it’s OK to just be yourself and dance like no one’s watching.

Worldwide Day of Play is a health and wellness initiative started by the television channels of Nickelodeon in 2004. To encourage their audience to “get up, go outside and play,” Nickelodeon will suspend programming on WWDoP across all of its TV channels — Nickelodeon, Nick Jr., Nicktoons and TeenNick — and websites from noon to 3 p.m.
