This year’s theme is: Play Builds Children.
The Playday 2019 theme aims to highlight the many ways in which play is beneficial to children and young people.
* Play Builds Friendships – playing allows children to interact with others, develop relationships, deal with conflict, and learn respect and tolerance.
* Play Builds Resilience – playing boosts children’s confidence, creativity, problem-solving skills and perseverance, enabling them to cope with stress and challenges throughout life.
* Play Builds Health and Well-being – being active through play helps children physically and emotionally, contributing to their health and happiness.
* Play Builds Communities – playing allows children to learn about the world around them, make connections, and develop a sense of identity and belonging.
