With the nice weather here, now is the time to start getting a little more active and getting your children outside. Sudocrem have just launched their PlayMore Challenge in a bid to get children outside playing.
Sudocrem recently carried out research, and found that children are spending around 45 hours per week in front of a screen, and only 4 hours playing outside. Sudocrem have launched the campaign with the help of Chris Packham, and carried out further research looking into the relationship between children and insects. They found that 9 out of 10 children (89%) were unable to recognise a butterfly. There is an abundance to British insects with around 27,000 insect species in the UK. And 51% did not know what a bumblebee looks like, and 1 in 3 (29%) did not realise that bees make honey.
Sudocrem are running a campaign, offering nurseries around the UK the chance to win support for playground regeneration, or a mural which will be painted by award winning artist Joy Pirkle.
To make your nomination please go to Sudocrem and complete the nomination form, the closing date for entries is 31st August 2018.
Chris Packham from BBC Spring Watch is joining our campaign to provide more nurseries with support to improve their outdoor play areas. We’re also giving away “My Little Adventure Packs” with instructions on how to make your very own Bug Hotel, T shirts, caps and much more.
When I was a child, we did not have computer screens and only had three channels on the TV, so we had to make our own entertainment, and most of that would be playing outside.
Along with nominating your nursery, Sudocrem are also giving one lucky reader the chance to win an adventure kit worth £40, which includes
- Play More T Shirt
- Play More Sun Hat
- Bug Pot
- Butterfly Net
- Magnifying Glass
- Trowel or Fork
