which one and why? i ask because today is world day of play. it might be world day of play just for nickelodon i don't know. but all i know is when i turn it on that channel it says go out side and play do some jumping jacks. i'm like wow our kids must be really fat today for them to cut off cartoons for a day. and well i read it and i was nope i'm gonna watch tv and turn it on another station i don't like nick that much anyway. i rather watch tv and get on the computer rather than playing because i feel like i'm to old to go out and play out side i want to be mature and i don't see kids my age going out and playing tag. i don't have a bike but i want one. so if i had one sure i would go outside and play with my bike or something. so what would you do if you did go outside and play?

You made me laugh with that comment "wow our kids must be really fat today"...but in truth, childhood obesity is becoming a major problem, and I think you have the right idea for why Nickelodeon started this initiative. I don't really like to be outside too much, either, but over the last few years I've tried to get outside and walk when I can because it's good for you! Maybe you could try taking walks? Just be safe and be careful where you go! Take a buddy if you can. If I'm being honest, though, I'd rather be inside watching the news.

Hey, Well it would depend on what I would play outside. If I would play something like tennis or basketball or something like that, then I would much rather go outside and play outside rather than watch boring TV. Make sure you have a good day, God bless and Happy Lotting!!

I rather watch television. I already enjoyed playing outside when I was still a kid. Now I'm on my twenties, I find more comfort on watching Discovery Channel and learn some new things about this world and life in general.

hi! this is what i usually do if im not working or studying or not mylotting: interact with my family or go outside and play badminton with my friends. sometimes, i jog with them. or play scrabble with my nephews. watching tv is also a good one. am a movie/tv buff but i make it a point that it never prejudices my social life. :)

I like watching television to some extend. Sometimes I like going out. It is always great to listen to music and read some books. I also like cartoons very much. Tom and Jerry is one of my favorite cartoons.

I would prefer to play outside because I watch TV less as I will be in from of my laptop for most of the time. Since I don't watch TV that often, playing outside seems to be a great option for me. Happy Lotting

Well I guess I would say watching TV. But if it is a really nice I might go out and take a walk or go someplace fun that is out doors. But mostly I would probably stay in and watch TV, I have a lot of shows that I like to watch right now so I would enjoy TV.

It is healthy for us all to spend a little time outside. But I would rather be outside then in the house watching TV or playing on the computer. I am older an when we was growing up it was only natural to stay out and find something to get into. We would build rock walls and make them into castles. Some of us would dig things up and play like we had a treasure. There is so many things to explore and see on the outside. And the sunshine is good for you too.
