Summer of Connection: Play Scotland x Wee Seeds

Feels like summer is meant to be a time to relax, and enjoy what sunshine we have in Scotland, right? But for working parents and carers, it can often feel like a juggling act. Work, home, kids clubs, etc etc. We can sometimes feel like there’s no time to connect, bring calm, play together, or enjoy our family time. 

That’s why Play Scotland and Wee Seeds have joined forces this year to bring you ideas to help this be a time where you can bring a little closeness to your family, practise some new wellbeing skills, and have some fun. Latterly we’ll help you to prepare for the transition to the new term. 

We want to help you find the space and time to play, be bored, and look after your family’s physical and mental wellbeing. 

Join us each Sunday on our main social media channels – when every week we’ll be helping you with a new topic.
