Wednesday 3rd August is ‘Playday’, this is celebrated each year across the UK on the first Wednesday in August. This year’s theme is ‘All to play for – building play opportunities for all children’, which hopes to bring all aspects of play to every child, in every community.
It seems, especially in these modern times of mobile phone and computer screens, that play in its purest format, has been forgotten.
Gardening is the perfect tool for bringing joy (and education) into the lives of young people. It does not matter whether you have a garden, a balcony or a windowsill, every child can grow something, even if it is an egg cup full of cress.
Having fun doesn’t have to be expensive, something as simple as a Tug of War or making a den in the garden with old sheets can bring more enjoyment than any computer game! Here are just some ideas for your Playday!
Of course, the old favourites of birthday parties from years gone by are very popular too! Musical Chairs, Musical Bumps and Musical Statues, never seem to go out of fashion! Many of these old school games can be updated for present day too. Pass The Parcel for example…
Make every day a ‘Playday’ for the well-being of all children!
