A Play Day is an event where Right To Play games are used to mobilize schools and communities around a particular issue or simply to promote awareness on how Right To Play uses specially designed games to teach health issues, life skills and to promote peace. Some schools choose to use a Play Day to raise funds for our organization either through pledge forms or participation fees. It is a great way to kick off or end the school year!

A great way to use recycled material found around the home and classroom is to make something new and useful. The majority of children and youth Right To Play works with overseas don’t have access to sport equipment and often times children will use what they have to create a ball to play with. Follow this activity to create your very own ball out of used plastic bags and string.
