National playday 2017

Our Vibrant Communities Play and Early Intervention team will once again be celebrating National Playday in East Ayrshire on the national day for play on Wednesday 2 August 2017, at the Kay Park, Kilmarnock from 11am–3pm.

This year's Playday is celebrating its 30th anniversary nationally. In recognition of this milestone the 2017 Playday campaign will Celebrate Play; calling on everyone across the UK to celebrate all things play including:

  • Playing is free
  • Playing is child’s right (UNCRC, Art 31)
  • Playing supports physical and emotional health and wellbeing
  • Playing supports respect and appreciation of the natural environment
  • Playing promotes development and learning

This free event will once again have an array of activities to try on the day within the Free Play, Creative, Fun, Adventure, Physical and Messy Zones, including Quad Bikes, Canoeing on the pond, Laser Quest, sports taster sessions, water/mud slide, inflatables, face painting, arts and crafts, plus so much more.  There will also be the opportunity to speak with local services and clubs across East Ayrshire at the stall holders section.

Activities take place no matter the weather so please bring appropriate clothing. If you want a shot on the mud slide then a change of clothes and a towel is recommended!

Remember - it’s fun, it’s fabulous and it’s free!
