Happy International Day of Play


Today marks the first-ever International Day of Play, a day dedicated to the joy, creativity, and connection that play brings into our lives.

From physical health benefits to fostering creativity and building stronger communities, play is an essential part of our wellbeing.

In the early years, it’s through play that kids can explore, experiment, and engage with the world around them. It’s how children learn and develop socially, physically and emotionally which is crucial for their health and wellbeing.

🤸‍♀️ Play promotes physical activity and keeps us healthy.

😊 Play reduces stress and boosts our mood.

🎨 Play encourages creativity, problem-solving and innovation.

👫 Play strengthens friendships and builds communities.

Play isn’t just for kids – playing together strengthens family bonds, creates memories, and teaches valuable life skills.

Today let’s celebrate the universal language of play and its essential role in promoting health, learning, social connections, and our overall quality of life.

Join us in celebrating today by engaging in playful activities, whether it’s a family game, an outdoor adventure, or a creative hobby.
