Play is an essential part of every child’s life. It is vital for the enjoyment of childhood as well as for social, emotional, intellectual and physical development. Since Scottish schools will be on holiday in August when national Play Day is held, Play Scotland suggested celebrating it on June 21st, the longest day of the year. The idea is to encourage children to get outdoors and get active.
