#PlayAtHome with Playworks

  1. Updates

Playworks wants to help make sure kids still get to play every day.

Play At Home

School closures are significantly changing day-to-day life for kids across the country and the world. Families are looking for ways to keep their kids engaged, active, and having fun. And teachers are looking for support interacting with students virtually.

Playworks is here to help!

We’re providing free video tutorials of games that follow CDC guidelines and can be played at home with little to no equipment. Families can also download a printable  Playbook on the Play at Home website that features these games.

You and your family can play along during a free virtual recess with Playworks live on Facebook three times per day Monday-Friday. Watch what the experience feels like for children who play along.

Find video tutorials for games you can play at home anytime on Youtube:

Unable to tune in to our Play at Home Live Recess segments? Our Youtube channel features several videos that provide demonstrations of games, such as Popcorn featured below, that can be played at home.

Share these games and challenge your friends to participate in the Popcorn Challenge.

Take the Popcorn Challenge

How many claps can you reach? After you learn how to play Popcorn, record your family playing and upload the video to social media, then challenge friends to play along!

Share your post by tagging @Playworks and #PlayworksAtHome. 


Help Playworks continue to share the power of play and keep recess going.
