BTHA’s Make Time 2 Play campaign offers new play ideas

Free play app offers more than 450 activity ideas for parents.

At a time where social distancing is prevalent, schools are closed and children are stuck at home all day following government advice, boredom can set in and it can be difficult for parents to constantly think of new play ideas for children.

To this end, BTHA has highlighted its Make Time 2 Play campaign, which aims to make it easier for parents to access more play activities, as well as incorporating more playtime into their children’s daily schedules through its website, app and social media pages.

There are free daily play ideas and a library of resources on the benefits of play, while the campaign also allows parents and carers to share their own play tips and suggestions with others.

Parents and carers are able to access more than 450 play ideas. They can filter their search on the app by the age of their child, how many children will be participating, the play setting, the time duration and by the different benefits of play.

Activities range from arts and crafts through to physical challenges and imaginative play.
