Study Behind KaBOOM! Contest Platform to Make Cities More Playable

Kids need imagination and an active life. Without it, their development is limited. Many studies have shown that it is crucial for kids to have more active play in their life because children really need that stimulation to help build a creative mind. That’s why KaBOOM!, a competition set up by Skild’s contest management software, has created a challenge aimed at finding a solution to this problem. The KaBOOM! contest platform has built this challenge in hope to find the best ways to incorporate play for kids in everyday situations. Some of those ways could be placed in:

• Sidewalks
• Vacant lots
• Bus stops
• Open streets

Unfortunately, not all children are lucky enough to get a lot of playtime. Depending on the community that they are born into, they may get less time for play outside because they are located somewhere that isn’t safe.
