But now, in my, ahem, older years, I'm not quite as liberal as my parents were. I do go on long walks or runs with my children, and we are frequent park visitors, but as a grown up I'd say that I'm really not as "playful" as I ought to be and I certainly don't let them wander through the neighborhood unsupervised. And, yes, I'm on the treadmill at least three times a week plugged into my 5k...but is it joyful play? It is certainly routine, but rewarding to my soul?
So that's why this season I'm thankful for the KaBOOM! "60 Minutes of Play" "giftcard" app:
Thankfully, KaBOOM! has the best gift that you can give for the holidays...at no cost to you except for the time it takes to send it. Give The Gift of Play. That's right. For every 60 minutes of PLAY you send to a friend on facebook, you get 5 minutes of BONUS PLAY time! As I write this blog, I've earned 570 minutes of PLAY! You bet I'm cashing that in during this winter break...no one said I had to play with my kids, right? What I can't believe is that KaBOOM! CEO Darrell Hammond...isn't in the lead! What? That's crazy! The man has a Foosball table in his conference room and a tire swing in his front entry way!

And by the way...that gift card NEVER expires. Ever. You can cash in your minutes at any time. In fact, it's more fun to cash in those minutes with a friend...Foos Ball anyone? Game on!
