July 27, 2024.

Gillette Children’s has created the Inclusive Day of Play as a rallying cry to unite kids of all abilities. We’re creating resources and sending an open invitation to everyone throughout Minnesota and around the world to join in an inclusive day of play.


Empower your play.

How can you spread the word? In our toolkit, you'll discover resources for facilitating play for all abilities, planning your inclusive play date, and amplifying the importance of play for every child.

Where will you play on July 27? Our interactive Inclusive Play Map offers information, photos and video about playgrounds near you. Or, use our form to submit more information about your favorite play area.

Why does it matter?  Play helps children develop their cognitive, physical, social, and emotional well-being. Through play, children build confidence, develop relationships, and learn about the world. That's why every child deserves a chance to play.
