Our Story

National Play Outside Day was founded by Aaron Wiggans and Rhonda D. Abeyta on March 7th, 2011.

Our close group of friends were talking one day. We observed that it seems like kids don't play outside as much as they used to when we were kids, including ours. After further discussion, we talked about how, as adults, living in beautiful Colorado, we don't enjoy the outside as much as we should. We get busy with our day-to-day lives and activities.

Out of this, we decided to form National Play Outside Day to encourage habits outdoor play.... not just for kids, but for families and adults.

If we don't make it a priority and plan it, it's easy to get caught up in our day-to-day lives and not enjoy the beautiful world right in our backyard.

Get outside and have some fun! Make it a priority and plan it.
