Ever wish you knew the neighbours? Maybe you have a street full of other young families and wish there was an easy way to connect and introduce the kids and you know, all look out for each other a bit. 1000 Play Streets is a movement initiated by Play Australia to assist Australian families to create stronger, healthier communities with in our own residential streets
Wouldn’t it be nice to see the kids play cricket in the street with other local kids? Ride their bikes? Make a new friend? P.L.A.Y. We retreat to our houses and screens more and more. Housing and yards are smaller and smaller and some help to get outdoors with others sounds like a tops idea to us.
You can become a 1000 Play Streets supporter. You can get involved and host a play street, You can also become an official campaign partner.
So if blocking off your street for an afternoon of play and socialising sounds like a great idea to you, if you’d love to know a little more about your neighbours and especially if you have other children in your street, check out Play Australia or ask your local council if any one in the area is already involved.
