National Children’s Day was originally established by the UN General Assembly is 1954 as a day of worldwide fraternity and understanding between children. The assembly suggested to governments that the day be observed on the date and in the way which each considers appropriate. It now recognised on various days in many places around the world.

Over the last few decades a variety of factors have significantly reduced children’s ability to play, including changes in family structure, a fast-paced lifestyle, a more risk-adverse society and an increased focus on academic attainment. National Children’s Day is here to reverse these factors, all thanks to the Save Childhood Movement, who felt it was important to dedicate one day towards the beginning of Summer purely for the UK to celebrate and with the intention of enabling children to play and enjoy the great outdoors.

So, what are you waiting for? Head over to your local park and make the most of National Children’s Day UK this Sunday!
