Let’s go out and play Calgary

I took my niece and nephew to the park the other day, which is one of my fave things to do as Auntie Irene. They’re still in the under-5 age range where the park is really shiny and new to them. It makes it a cool experience to see them discover all the different pieces of equipment and laugh and play like kids are supposed to do. I don’t know how long this sign has been attached to the park fence, but it made me laugh when I saw it. It’s often talked about how kids growing up these days will face a lot of challenges and are constantly hidden behind screens of all kinds: TVs, computers, iPads, smartphones and more. “Not available on the app store” is a friendly way to remind us of the simpler times when kids played outside, made up games and used their imagination to the fullest. Let’s put down all the devices and just get out there and play.
