Pop-Up Play Events!

Big picture

Here at Planet Play, we believe that play matters everywhere and for everyone.


As we continue to deliver quality play opportunities across the metro, we are excited to announce we are conducting our first Play Study!


This study aims to understand:

  • How parents and caregivers define play, participate in play, and make it accessible for children

  • How COVID-19 has impacted social play opportunities for children

  • What parents and caregivers desire and expect when it comes to diversity and inclusion in play

  • The relevance of Planet Play’s programs and services to parents and caregivers


We will be conducting our research through public pop-up play events and an online survey. The report of findings and recommendations of this study will inform the strategic direction of our organization and will be shared with other leaders in the play community.


Pop-up play events will be fully staffed and organized by Planet Play. Running for two hours, children will interact with our PlayMobile that has loose parts for unstructured playtime! Our Play Study Committee and volunteers will survey accompanying parents and caregivers.


Hope to see you there!
