Today is the big day: Worldwide Recess Day! What are you doing to get your 10-minutes of recess?
KEEN footwear is encouraging everyone to get out and play for at least 10 minutes today. Take a picture of your fun, upload it to Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #TAKE10, and you could win a pair of KEEN shoes!
Here are five ideas for a fun day of recess.
1. Walk the dog!
If you don’t have a dog, volunteer at a rescue organization and walk some dogs who need it most. Better yet, adopt one of those dogs if you have the love and time to give a sweet pooch. You’ll receive far more from a rescued dog than you can ever give.
2. Invite a friend to coffee, and then walk there together.
Or, if you’re in Austin, Texas, walk to Gordough’s for a giant, made-to-order donut, then see if either you or your friend can finish one together.
3. Play tourist for a day in your own town.
Put on some shorts, a Hawaiian shirt, and sandals with black socks, and go check out the sights! Don’t forget your camera!
If you’re in San Diego, Washington, DC or Stratford, Ontario, take a walking tour. You can also Segway around the hot spots of San Diego if you opt to go with Another Side of San Diego Tours.
4. Do a photo scavenger hunt with friends.
See who can find all the public art in your town first. If you’re in Chicago, you may need a whole weekend for this!
5, Make today a day of courage by doing something you’ve never done before.
Bonus points if it’s something you’ve always wanted to do, such as riding in a hot air balloon or learning what it takes to be a dolphin trainer.
Those are some of my ideas. Now, how are you going to play?
