This year play day was celebrated on Wednesday 7th August and the theme for Play Day was Play Builds Children.
We invited parents to join their children for the room’s activities and our activities included planting vegetables, shaving foam ice cream cones, bubbles, construction crates and lots of Hungry Caterpillar activities.
Play Day aims to highlight the many ways in which play is beneficial to children and young people.
Play builds friendships – playing allows children to interact with others, develop relationships, deal with conflict, and learn respect and tolerance.
Play builds resilience – playing boosts children’s confidence, creativity, problem solving skills and perseverance, enabling them to cope with stress and challenges throughout life.
Play builds health and well-being – being active through play helps children physically and emotionally, contributing to their health and happiness.
Thank you for joining us in our fun filled morning.
