Share the Joy of Play
play everywhere, for everyone
What is Planet Play?
Planet Play’s innovative, sustainable model brings play to children where they are and helps the adults who care for them make play a part of families’ everyday lives. We are committed to the families and communities that need us the most. We lead the play movement locally through accessible play and learning experiences, address a need that’s not currently met in our community and collaborate with partners that share the vision for a more playable Kansas City.
This year, Planet Play launched Year of Play 2015 to bring monthly “pop-up play” events to many young children and their families across Greater Kansas City.
Our focus for Year of Play was reaching communities with economic need and little previous access to safe, accessible, creative play experiences for families.
We reached our goal for Year of Play by offering our pop-up events in 12 diverse KC communities in 2015, nine of which were communities of economic need.
