5. Reflect on how you play, every day
Play Week is all about celebrating the importance and simplicity of play, every day. Perhaps by exploring your local reserve or park, letting the kids get wet in a stream or puddle, climbing trees or jumping off things, perhaps dancing around the house with your favourite music. How do you play, every day? Find out more about Play Week.
Watch out each Friday for a fun list of five great activities to do, places to explore, or things to discover in our awesome city.
