Join our Storybook Treasure Hunt today!

To celebrate Playday 2021, and kick start our Summer of Play, we have hidden 3000 free Storybook Packs across Wales – for children and their families to find.  

Following a difficult year and a half, it’s time for children to have a summer full of play and fun. The Storybook Treasure Hunt gives families the chance to explore their community, use their imaginations, and continue the magic with the stories they take home.

The packs include two children’s storybooks and some added playful surprises. The storybooks are all about the importance of play. This Playday we want to ensure everyone knows, and encourages, children’s right to play today and every day.

Get involved

For clues on where to find storybook treasure in your area, keep an eye on your local council or play team’s social media throughout the day. We will be sharing some clues on our Facebook and Instagram too.

Playday 2021

Today (4 August) is Playday – the national day for play in the UK. Thousands of children and their families are out playing in their communities and in local events. This summer we are encouraging families to give children plenty of chances to play and have fun outdoors with their friends – today and throughout the Summer of Play.
