FUN IN THE DUNGEON
Fun in the dungeon
Fun in the dungeon is a storybook about children’s right to play.
It’s for children and parents, empowering children to be advocates as right bearers and parents to advocate for local play. The storybook will also be a useful resource for professionals to support their work with children and families.
Play Wales has worked with a storyteller, cartoonist, children and parents at Mount Stuart Primary School in Cardiff to develop the storybook. The storyteller supported a group of children and parents through a series of workshops, identifying issues and celebrations regarding play. Through the workshops, words and images were created to tell the story, with children providing inspiring drawings of playful images which helped our cartoonist to bring the story to life.
Fun in the dungeon has been distributed across Wales.
The storybook is now available online for all to read. It is free to read and will only be available for a limited time. We have made Fun in the dungeon available online to allow more children and their families in Wales and further afield to enjoy. This is part of our support in response to the coronavirus pandemic.
Read Fun in the dungeon
We have developed a Story telling session pack to accompany our Fun in the dungeon storybook. The resource, which is freely available to download, offers ideas on ways the storybook can be used to discuss play with children and teenagers.
Funding from the National Lottery Awards for All programme enabled Play Wales to engage Petra Publishing, an established community-based publisher, to help us to develop and publish the storybook.
