The Government have launched a new initiative encouraging ‘play’ during this time. You can access it at https://www.gov.ie/en/campaigns/lets-play-ireland/?referrer=/letsplayireland/
There are fantastic Messy Play Booklets available to download.
This is a government-led initiative aimed at promoting play for all children.
Playing is central to children’s physical, mental, social and emotional health and wellbeing. Children learn through play while developing resilience, flexibility and understanding of their world. Play in families enriches childhood. All children and young people have a right to play.
Play has never been more important, but during this time please follow the HSE advice on physical distancing and wash your hands. For more information go to hse.ie/coronavirus.
