"One benefit of summer was that each day we had more light to read play by."
- Jeannette Walls

Play Scotland

Summer of Play!

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 change in temperature and surrounding environment is a treasure trove of experiences and play opportunities that are vital to development and enjoyment. 

Summer is a wonderful time to explore your community and natural environment – get out and play!
