Worldwide Day Of Play with Ciara Bravo!

The Worldwide Day of Play is an annual Nickelodeon event that encourages kids to stop watching TV,  get off the computer, and go outside and play!Worldwide Day of Play

Today,, Nickelodeon will turn off all of its programming from 12pm to 3pm to urge kids to go outside and participate in healthy outdoor activities.

"Honestly, I think it's amazing," said Worldwide Day of Play host and Nickelodeon star Ciara Bravo. "It's east to get caught up and distracted by electronics, and I think it's great they encourage kids to go outside."

Ciara is currently in New York City gearing up for the big event. She will be hosting performances by Nickelodeon stars Ariana Grande and Big Time Rush.

"I got here yesterday," she said the day before the event. We went to the hotel room, unpacked, and immediately went outside and started walking around."

Ciara explained that of the great things about New York City is the change to be active there.

"It's such a walkable city," she said.

She also had a great time shopping with her mom in the city. They stopped for pizza and spend the day enjoying themselves and expiring NYC. She also stopped to visit New York University, one of her prospective colleges.

The Empire State Building has been lit up with orange lights every night this week to promote the "City of Play."

Today, activities at Brooklyn's Prospect Park will include football, tennis, jump rope and more from 10 in the morning until 4 in the afternoon for the Worldwide Day of Play!

Among Ciara's suggested activities for tomorrow were fishing, tag, four square, and climbing trees.

"If you have woods nearby, you can go exploring," she said. "That was my favorite things to do. It still is my favorite thing to do. But make sure to wear bug spray!"

She and her friends would also play a game based on the game show Survivor.

"One of us was the host, the rest of us were contestants, and we had to come up with challenges," she explained. "The winner got like, a popsicle. It was a really fun little game."

Ciara said that the event is important simply because being active is healthy.

She added that going outside and playing with friends create memories a lot more substantial than ones made in front of a computer or television screen.

"You get to be a kid. That's important," she said. "There's plenty of time when you grow up to do that stuff. You might grow up and get a desk job where you have to stare at a computer 24 hours a day. For now, you can go outside and you can play."

We totally agree!

Ciara's next project is a movie called Jinxed. In Jinxed, Ciara plays a 14-year-old girl named Meg Murphy.

"Her family has been cursed with bad luck for 100 years," Ciara said. "The family's motto is 'If anything bad can happen, it will happen.'"

Meg sets out to reverse the curse on the Murphy family! We can't wait to see the movie when it premieres in November!
