A revolutionary way to play! Play Trails get the entire family engaged in the outdoors Bees Play Pocket Spiders Play Pocket Pond Life Play Pocket Ants Play Pocket Butterflies Play Pocket Reconnecting families & trails Today, although trails exist in city, suburb, and open country, it appears that only a small minority of children and families are actually using them. While trails are a popular spot for health conscious adults, families with young children often do not find them engaging. In order to find a solution to this problem, GameTime collaborated with a network of experts from the American Trails group. The answer? Play Trails! Play Trails is a revolutionary phenomena that links pockets of play elements in a linear pattern along or within a trail system. Each Play Pocket is themed with either flora inspired elements like leaves, trees, and mushrooms or fauna inspired elements like dragonflies, turtles, spiders, bees and ants. Play Trails activities are grouped in Play Pockets along the trail and each Play Pocket features a sign that teaches fun facts about the subject’s contributions to nature and fun activities for the family. (Did you know that an ant can carry 20 times its own body weight or that a hummingbird is the only bird capable of flying backwards and sideways?) This breakthrough in play environments creates parent/child interaction in the play pockets and along the trail between one pocket and the next. “With new ways to attract children to trails, we can grow new generations of children who value public spaces. This is an effective way to create fun while teaching environmental values. Where play and fun objects are involved, each trip to the trail can be more fun and self-renewing,” explains Pam Gluck, Executive Director of American Trails. GameTime is revolutionizing family fun by creating family events that encourage physical activity, further develop the parentchild bond, and inspire environmental stewardship in the children of tomorrow.
