The “Manifesto For Fun Colouring and Activity Book” is a special colouring book to celebrate the first ever International Day of Play (IDoP) on 11 June 2024. The book contains information about how the IDoP come to be, the latest research about play in children’s development as well as a series of colouring in and other activities for children to do with their parents and the adults in their life.


The #PledgeToPlay is a playful contract between children and their caregivers to play more, anytime and everywhere. The Pledge recognises the importance of play in children’s lives and the critical role that parents and caregivers have in facilitating learning through play.
