National Children’s Week 2022

CHILDREN’S WEEK IN TASMANIA ACTIVITY GUIDE  2022:    SECURE YOUR SPACE NOW!

Dates:  22 October – 30 October 2022

Theme: Children have the right to a standard of living that supports their wellbeing and healthy development (based on Article 27 United Nations Convention of the Rights of the Child)

Children’s Week is for children and young people of all ages from birth to 18 years old.

Each year Playgroup Tasmania work closely with community partners to promote activities and events across Children’s Week.

In 2022, Playgroup Tasmania and the Statewide Working Group will again produce a comprehensive Children’s Week Guide reaching children of all ages across Tasmania. We will support and promote community partners as they host their own activities and will produce a bigger and better Children’s Week 2022 Activity Guide.

We now invite you to secure your space in the guide.  You can submit a draft of your free activity or activities (which can be face-to-face, online or a combination of both).

Important note:  There will be opportunity to edit and refine your activity before the guide is printed. But we do ask to keep the same age range and activity name.

Please base your activity on the theme for 2022: “Children have the right to a standard of living that supports their wellbeing and healthy development”.

Registrations close Sunday 24th July

 

ACTIVITY IDEAS

There are lots of different types of activities that are suitable for Children’s Week.  You might also consider working in partnership with another local organisation and putting on an activity together.  Some ideas to think about include:

  • Local treasure and scavenger hunts around your suburb or town
  • Local teddy bears’ picnics in your community
  • Come and Try Free Session (suitable for Sport and Rec clubs, Guides etc.)
  • Art competition and exhibition (either online or in person)
  • Connect to country
  • Story writing activity
  • Take a cultural tour or history walk
  • Open Day at your organisation’s venue
  • Movie night
