It's time to play


Playtime ideas, inspiration and ways to help children bounce back after the pandemic.

This summer, the UK is coming together to create a million moments of play for millions of children who’ve been missing out during the pandemic.

For kids, play is serious. It’s how they learn. They explore the world around them, do better at school, make friends and feel good. And when’s that ever been more important?
