Play into Autumn!
Playing outdoors is essential for our children and young people to understand, value, enjoy and protect our natural world. In Scotland, this means playing outside in all weathers.
The autumn is a treasure trove of experiences and play opportunities that are vital to development and enjoyment. The trees change colour and nature is all around.
Autumn is a wonderful time to explore your community and natural environment – get out and play!
This resource includes activities that can only be done outside, as well as crafts and games that use natural materials.
Scotland’s Play Charter describes our collective commitment to play for all children and young people. Supporters of the Charter:
- recognise that all children have the right to participate in play activities and experiences
- value play as a life-enhancing daily experience for all our children
- support children to have fun, creative, fulfilling and development rich play experiences throughout their childhoods
- recognise that playing is an essential part of a happy childhood as well as being vital to children’s wellbeing as individuals and members of society.
