Rain Didn’t Stop Play!
Keen as ever to promote children’s play, Leeds Play Network celebrated National Playday 2012 through funding an event in the local Hunslet community. The odd rain shower didn’t dampen everyone’s enthusiasm to ‘Get out and Play’ which was the theme for Playday 2012. The event provided children and their families with the opportunity to play freely and have fun together. Working alongside other local organizations ensured there was lots on offer including making bows and arrows, face painting, races, tug of war, assault courses, arts and crafts, messy play, food tasting, making music and story telling. All generations got involved and played, from toddlers through to their grandparents as the photographs below illustrate.
