The Play Well Packs

Play Scotland, Save the Children and the Beano are delighted to launch the Play Well Outdoors pack, which is jam-packed with ideas to help you Get into Summer. The pack is designed for primary school children, but activities can easily be changed to suit younger or older children too.

Enjoy a summer of play!

This bumper edition of the Play Well Outdoors pack has got ideas for games, activities and places to visit over the summer and beyond. It’s full of ideas for play that are great fun and don’t need much preparation or resources, come rain or shine!

We know that playing outside is so good for health and wellbeing, and particularly after the restrictions during recent times, it is especially important that children get outside to play regularly.

We want everyone to have a fantastic summer of play, and so the Play Well Outdoors pack is available in hard copy, free of charge to organisations and schools who are working with Primary School aged children. Just complete the order form and return it to

Play Well Pack – Supporting transitions

Lots of these activities help develop the skills that will be a good start for when they begin or go back to school. Each topic offers a simple play-based activity you can try with your child, and there are some extra ideas for play that are great fun but don’t need much preparation or resources.

Going back to nursery or getting back to primary school is exciting but it might be an anxious time. This pack aims to help you talk through these worries with your child and maybe help reduce some of your fears too.
