Make a Big Noise for Playday


Image for Make a Big Noise for Playday

2:00pm Wednesday 5 August 2020

Big Playday events aren’t being held this year. So, we need your help to celebrate Playday in your community.

We are calling on families, childcare and play settings, and communities across Wales and the rest of the UK to join the celebration of children’s right to play, from your doorsteps. Join us to clap, cheer, bang pots and pans, and generally Make a Big Noise for Playday at 2:00pm on Wednesday 5 August.


To help families and settings get involved with this year’s UK wide celebration, Playday resources can be downloaded and printed for easy sharing.

Download a postcard to share with neighbours to help spread the word so everyone can get involved in Make a Big Noise for Playday.

Download a Playday poster to colour in and display in windows, to show support for every child’s right to play.

Here is Wales, we have also developed a bilingual Article 31 colouring in sheet and a letter to the children of Wales about Playday and their right to play.

If you work with children and families, please share these resources with your networks and the children in your setting. Or if your setting is putting together play packs for distributing to children in your area over the summer, this would be a simple way to get the community celebrating children’s right to play.
