Playday 2020

The countdown to #Playday2020 is on!  In the run up to Playday on 5 August, PlayBoard is counting down our top three play props. These are everyday items or loose parts that we can all find at home or in the garden which can be used in lots of different ways for lots of fun!

In at number 3 (drumroll please 🥁) we have … the cardboard tube! This isn’t just any old toilet roll or kitchen roll tube. With a little imagination and creativity it can be transformed into a superhero cuff, worn on a mission to save the planet 🦸‍♀️; a dancing puppet putting on a show 🎭; or even a telescope on the search for lost treasure 💰.

Check out our suggestions, but remember the best ideas come from our own imaginations! Share your ideas and let us see your creations in the comments below, so others can try. Check back later in the week as we continue our countdown.

Find out more about Playday and how you can join others across the UK in Making a Big Noise for Playday from your doorstep at 2:00pm on Wednesday 5 August at
