National Playground Safety Week

By

Updated November 15, 2012

Event: National Playground Safety Week

Date: Fourth week in April

Location: Public and school playgrounds

Organizer: National Program for Playground Safety

What to do: National Playground Safety Week has three goals: to focus on children's outdoor play areas, to teach kids how to play safely, and to thank adults who work to make and keep playgrounds safe. The National Program for Playground Safety asks families to check the playgrounds where they play (see a playground safety checklist) and alert owners or authorities to any problems. NPPS also recommends brainstorming up to five playground safety rules with your children.
