Children’s Activities Week is an exciting NEW national event celebrating the hundreds of thousands of activities, clubs and classes benefiting millions of children every day across the UK - helping them stay fit, healthy, engaged and happy!
The Children’s Activities Week mission is to
- Showcase the huge range of activities which take place every day throughout the country – from sport to languages, science to yoga and art to bush-craft and the fantastic teachers and coaches making it all happen.
- Raise vital funds for 2 fantastic causes. Caudwell Children does amazing work to enhance the lives of disabled children and their families, providing access to services and support and raising awareness with the motto ‘whatever it takes’. The Children’s Activities Association is the first not-for-profit, industry-led independent organisation to raise standards in all organised children's activities and at last offer parents, schools and nurseries a swift way to get peace of mind when choosing activities.
- Highlight the positive impact children’s activities have on physical and mental health and wellbeing for children (and for parents) along with the huge potential benefits developmentally, educationally and socially that participating within activities can bring. This is at a time when concerns around childhood obesity and levels of screen time rarely seem to be out of our press.
With the focus on FUN, hundreds of thousands of children (and some grown-ups!) will be dressing up to attend their favourite activity, club or class around the theme '#WatchMeFly'. Look out across social media or on the streets of Britain during Children’s Activities Week for a wealth of bees, pilots, butterflies, dragons, rockets, ladybirds, superheroes, fairies and more, all in celebration of the week and all the exciting things taking place.
There'll also be amazing competitions, VIP visitors – such as sports personalities and Olympians - to clubs and classes and a world record breaking attempt with Sid Sloane from CBeebies sponsored by Morton Michel! Participants from anywhere in the UK can sign up and join Sid at 10.15 on Monday April 30th as we blast-off Children’s Activities Week in style! Sid will then be visiting a wealth of different kids’ clubs and classes, ending his tour also sponsored by Morton Michel with a guest appearance at ‘Under 1 Roof’ in London as the exciting week comes to a close. Find out more about What's On.
Thousands of children’s activities and over 200,000 children and more than 1000 kids’ activity providers are expected to participate and with no charge to be part of the action and so much to enjoy and benefit from it’s no surprise that Children’s Activities Week is set to be the most inspiring and remarkable event of its type ever witnessed in the UK.
And, the children’s activity or group who raise the most money for charity and show the most energy and passion for the week will also be rewarded with a very special prize – a visit from singer, TV presenter and personality Peter Andre!
A wealth of sports personalities and celebrities are also supporting Children’s Activities Week to include celebrities, children’s TV personalities, Olympians and Paralympians.
Children’s Activities Week will run from April 30th to May 4th 2018 UK-wide.
