The Importance of Play

Physical activity, through play and other activities, is important for children’s mental health and cognitive development as well as their physical health.

Children need play to survive and thrive. Play is a life-enhancing experience which fosters resilience, the ability to handle stress, challenges and setbacks.

These resources from McDonald’s can help children and young people to get out and play.

If you are in a public space, please follow social distancing guidelines.
