Playday 2024

On Wednesday 7th August, families, communities, childcare and youth settings will celebrate Playday across the UK. The theme this year is ‘Play – the culture of childhood: Supporting play, fun and friendships’. Get involved using the hashtags #Playday2024 and #PlayAndCulture.

This year’s theme celebrates the rich and lively culture of children’s play. Every child plays – playfulness is a distinct feature of behaviour across generations and cultures. Playing generates a culture of childhood.

Playing is vital for children’s health, happiness, and creativity.

Through play:

Play is every child’s right – on Playday and every day. This Playday, Play Scotland is calling everyone – families, playworkers, and all those who work with children across the UK, to join together to foster a culture of supporting play.
