In Thailand, children use mobiles or tablets more than 13.1 hours a day. For this reason, Thai health promotion foundation of Thailand have campaign to reduce the ratio of sedentary lifestyle by promoting play in children. The brain activity between before and after playing in children is utilized to inspire their parents. This helps parents to understand the importance of developing in learning and motor skills. In this study, the electroencephalogram (EEG) during before and after playing from 100 males and 100 females children nationwide were analyzed. All children were assigned to play the same activities which consisted of 4 stations. All proposed tasks related to the developmental skills in children such as team rope jumping. EEG was collected in the same period of the day. The results suggested that there was a significant increase (p-value < 0.05) beta power between before and after playing which presented to increase in brain activity in frontal, central, and occipital area. According to this, the children with active lifestyle have more development in brain activity than sedentary lifestyle.
