Unplug and play!
Our campaign National Children’s Hour is encouraging families across the UK to unplug and play. We are asking you to put down the gadgets and have some good old-fashioned fun!
There are lots of fun ways you can bring stories to life for children, including masks, collages and role play.
Den-building came out top of the list when we asked children what they'd like to do with the extra hour of play.
Like cooking? This is a great activity for teaching children how to tell the time and getting them to eat vegetables.
All children learn through play, and messy play is an excellent way for children to explore the world around them.
Before you start your junk modelling make sure you have lots of PVA glue, sticky tape and all the 'junk' you can find.
Get active outdoors. From nature trails to foraging, jumping in puddles to walking the dog; children love to explore.
Why not turn your garden or a section of the local park into your very own sporting arena and stage your own Olympics.
We were at Glastonbury Festival last year, talking to festival goers about our National Children's Hour campaign.
With one extra hour in the day we want families to drop their gadgets and have some good old-fashioned fun.
