National Children’s Day 2017

Sunday 14th May is National Children’s Day here in the UK!

This special day is all about the importance of a healthy childhood and how we need to protect the rights and freedoms of children in order to ensure that they can grow into happy, healthy adults.

Children’s Day was established by the UN General Assembly in 1954 as a day of worldwide fraternity and understanding between children.

Here at KidStart we think this is an important cause to celebrate and raise awareness for. Save Childhood Movement who organised the day believe that children in the UK should be able to get outside on National Children’s Day, into their neighbourhoods and nature, this is why the day is always held at the beginning of summer.

Keeping this in mind we thought we’d take a look at retailers we work with who offer toys, games and activities for children to enjoy in the sun.
