At Let’s Play America (LPA) we believe everyone deserves to play. If you are looking for a way to bring play, fun, activity, health and energy to your community our Play Day programme and how to handbooks will help you do just that. Communities have gathered and played together for centuries and there was a time when these play events were the highlight of the year. Everyone looked forward to gathering, dining and playing together. We at LPA want to help you regain your sense of community, and we feel one of the best ways to do this is to plan a Play Day. It's your turn to bring magic to your community so read the steps with a playful eye, watch the videos, laugh, smile and dream of what you can do to bring play to others. Playing is universal and something we all should experience often. Let’s play!
