The world of childhood has changed so much since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. Children have missed out on time with family, school and playdates. Now, as well as everyday challenges, like falling out with friends or first-day-at-school nerves, they’re having to cope with the worries of living with a global pandemic.
There is one simple, powerful tool you can use to help the children in your life with these worries. Play…
That’s why GOSH Charity and the GOSH Play Team have created the Power of Play hub. The hub hosts free animations, audiobooks, and activities to help parents and children deal with themes such as loss, loneliness, illness and isolation.
There’s a new poem narrated by Matt Lucas, an exclusive issue of the Beano, a brand-new Peter Pan story, and a range of activity sheets designed to help children cope with everyday childhood challenges.
You can visit Power of Play Hub now and download these brilliant resources for free. And you can help provide vital support for seriously ill children from across the UK just by entering the Omaze Million Pound House Draw, Wimbledon.
80% of the net proceeds from the Wimbledon House Draw will be donated to this incredible charity. And the money we raise together could help build new wards, buy the latest medical equipment, or help fund pioneering research programmes to find new cures and kinder treatments.
