Nickelodeon’s #WWDoP is an entire day committed to the celebration of physical fitness and active play. As part of the company’s health and wellness messaging and outreach to kids, Nickelodeon goes completely dark on #WWDoP (September 26), suspending their programming on all of their channels -even shutting down their websites globally to reinforce one simple message about physical activity and healthy living: get up, get out and go play!
This is a perfect fit for Choosy Kids because we promote this all of the time and encourage parents, care givers and teachers to get children up and moving, exercising and eating right on a daily basis!
This year, #WWDoP is taking place on Saturday, September, 26. On and around this day, Nickelodeon supporters across the world will celebrate play by hosting their own #WWDoP events. Choosy will be making special classroom visits to friends in his home state of WV during the week of September 21-24 and will make a video showcasing just how much fun it is to move and dance, especially to Choosy Kids songs!
Choosy music and you can do the same! If you are new to Choosy music, you can download our song of the month, Empty Space Club, for free!
Show us your moves by sharing any photos or media with Choosy Kids on Facebook or Twitter (#ChoosyPlay) so we can showcase your support for the #WWDoP theme of celebrating physical activity. If social media isn’t a medium for which you communicate, please feel free to send any video, pictures and information to email@example.com.
Choosy’s dance party is more than just fun; it’s an exciting way to help promote active play and teach about healthy habits. Our health mascot and “Health Hero” Choosy, encourages young children to have fun while moving and dancing to his music. We hope that preschools and families all around the country can participate indoors or outdoors in our nationwide dance party. Let’s take this opportunity to reinforce and demonstrate to our children that music can help us stay active during playtime, reinforce healthy habits, and have fun with family or friends while elevating moods and heart rates!
Have fun with your dance party, share it with us, and be sure to check out other #WWDoP events in a city near you!
