U of L Play Day activities ready to go for week of virtual play events

LETHBRIDGE, AB – The University of Lethbridge’s annual Play Day is actually turning into an online Play Week this year.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the campus can’t open its doors to host fun activities on Family Day, this coming Monday. So, instead there will be play activities and other resources available online for families to use on their own time, in their own space.

Imagination will be the theme for Play Week from Feb. 15th to the 20th.

It’ll feature interactive videos for kids, online lectures about play and brain development, and a social media campaign to share the many benefits of playing together as a family.
