Rally For Recess: "Play is a critical component of healthy childhood development and outdoor playing can help children lead a more active lifestyle. In fact, there is a documented play deficit in the U.S. Thousands of schools no longer have recess, and in the last two decades, children have lost an average of 8 hours of free play a week. Danimals knows recess is important and wants mom's and kids across the country to "Rally for Recess".
