I’m excited to announce that Playnormous is officially a toddler this week. That’s right, it’s been a whole two years since we first launched our website back in May of 2008. I cannot believe how we’ve grown since then! Back in May 2008 were were a tiny website with a blog and two health games, Food Fury and Bubble Rubble. We hadn’t even gotten our first bit of press yet.
Today we are totally rockin’ with six amazing health games and two new ones on the way. Who knew the terrible twos could be so cool. Here’s a list of some of the many things we’ve accomplished since our launch:
Who could wish for anything more?
Our amazing TEA (that’s the Texas Education Agency) notified me today that Wednesday May 5, 2010 is Make the Movement Day.
This is the ACTIVE Life Movement’s annual, day-long initiative to encourage the public to create and share their “Moments” of physical activity (Move), healthy eating (Fuel), and personal and environmental health (Honor) to promote healthy, ACTIVE lifestyles.
Hundreds of teachers, families, and kids have already pledged to make their classroom a healthy one tomorrow. For example, one teacher in Houston, TX is going to have her class do 10-minute aerobic activities in their classroom tomorrow. Another in Galveston, TX has pledged to have her class eat fruits and vegetables as snacks during the school day.
