My boys LOVE to play outside. As a mom I am very happy about that. I know that the majority of kids today do not get outside and get the daily physical activity they need. The Centers for Disease Control has issued a statement explaining how important it is that children have at least 60 minutes of physical activity each day for healthy physical, mental and social development.

Crayola is on a create-and-play mission with Olympic Gold Medalist Dan O’Brien to inspire families to get outside and exercise their bodies and imaginations with creative Crayola activities.

Empowering a child to create everything imaginable this summer is fun and affordable with the newest lineup of Crayola Outdoor art tools.
Hopscotch Anyone?
After a hop, skip, and many jumps, Olympic Gold Medalist Dan O’Brien set a new Guinness World Record for fastest game of hopscotch to kick off National Physical Fitness & Sports Month and to raise awareness of the value of outdoor creative play.

“Helping Crayola inspire families to get outside and get creative is what this record is all about,” said O’Brien. “I took the Outdoor Challenge because I care about kids and I want to see them lead healthy and happy lives.”

With a time of 1 minute 21 seconds, Dan broke the previous record by nearly 2 seconds and added another achievement to his many athletic feats.

Join Crayola and Dan O’Brien in helping us reach our goal of 1 million hours of creative outdoor playtime. Take the Crayola Outdoor Challenge Pledge HERE and commit to the number of hours you’ll spend outside playing and creating with your kids this summer!
