Playful Childhoods is a campaign that aims to help parents, carers and grandparents give children:

to play at home and in their local community.

Children tell us they want more opportunities to play outside with their friends. Playing is a crucial part of a healthy and happy childhood. As adults, it’s our responsibility to make sure this happens.

Playful Childhoods has been created to support:

  • parents in giving their children opportunities to play
  • parents so they feel confident about letting their children play outside in the community
  • the development of playful communities for children across Wales
  • a shared understanding of the importance of play for children and teenagers by all adults across Wales.

Playful Childhoods is a Play Wales campaign.
