More than 250 U.S. cities are playful communities, according to Playful City USA, a national program that honors those cities and towns for creating safer environments where kids can play. The program is run by KaBOOM, a non-profit that promotes active play as a crucial part of daily life for all kids, especially those growing up in underserved areas. Faiza Elmasry tells us more about KaBOOM's philosophy and how it translates it into playgrounds. Faith Lapidus narrates.
