If you ask anyone, whether they are an adult or a child, what their favorite thing about school was/is they will tell you recess. It is a time where children will learn their social skills, run around to burn some energy and play with their friends. It is how kids can be kids and it is something that I will always have the best memories of.
My absolute favorite thing to do at recess was play tether ball. Oh man, tether ball was a BIG thing at my school. The whole class would get in line and one after one we would take turns trying to win. It was so much fun and really made me enjoy my childhood years.
Kids and recess belong together like peanut butter and jelly. We would love to hear what you loved most about recess as a child.
Did you know that in the past twenty years, children have lost an average of 8 hours of recess a week, and some schools no longer provide playtime for students? According to the American Academy of Pediatricians, the lack of playtime is a national crisis leading to a growing epidemic: childhood obesity.

I have partnered with Dannon/Danimals to help promote the “Rally for Recess” campaign. I have been compensated for my time commitment to the program, which includes writing about the promotion and product, and hosting a giveaway where the prize has been provided by Dannon/Danimals. However, my opinions are entirely my own and I have not been paid to publish positive comments.Contest Rules.
