AN ANNUAL celebration of play is being held online this year.

Conwy County Borough Council’s Play Development team, together with a range of other organisations, will be sharing activities on their social media pages throughout the day on Wednesday, August 5, to mark the National Playday.

This year’s theme is 'Everyday Freedoms Everyday Adventures'.

The aim of playday is to highlight the importance of play in children’s lives. The theme aims to highlight the importance of giving children and teenagers the freedom to play and have everyday adventures.

A spokesperson for the play day event said: "This year, we want to focus on the unique characteristics of play that we know help children make sense of the world around them and can alleviate their stress and anxiety, particularly during challenging and uncertain times.

"As in previous years we are calling on families and carers to support children to play in carefree ways, on Playday and every day! Children will play wherever they are and whenever they can – as adults we can support this by making play a part of our daily life."
