About This Project

The 2020 Play: health and well-being information sheet by Play Wales is an update from the version originally published in 2012. This information sheet describes why play is important for children’s physical and mental health and provides guidance on ways to support good quality play. Specific focus is given to play as an important source of physical activity for children, and the importance of play for emotional well-being, such as learning how to recognize and manage emotions.
