Mae digwyddiad blynyddol Conwy i ddathlu Diwrnod Chwarae Rhyngwladol ar ddydd Mercher Awst yr 2il 2017. Rydym ni wedi newid y lleoliad ar gyfer eleni yn unig a bydd y digwyddiad ar y traeth ger Porth Eirias, Bae Colwyn.

Mae’r gweithgareddau eleni yn cynnwys trefi tywod, helfeydd trysor, celf graffiti, adeiladu adeiladau, gwisg ffansi, celf a chrefft, coginio ar y tân, gwneud baneri, ceginau tywod, pêl foli, chwarae gyda glŵp a llawer iawn mwy.

Ac mae popeth am ddim wrth gwrs!

Oherwydd y lleoliad gwahanol, bydd dim llithren ddŵr yn y digwyddiad eleni.

Fel yr arfer, dewch â phicnic gyda chi yn ogystal â dillad y gallwch chi eu baeddu a dewch i chwarae.

Ni chaniateir cŵn ar y traeth a buasem ni’n ddiolchgar iawn pe bai oedolion yn peidio ag ysmygu wrth ymyl y gweithgareddau. Gofynnwn ichi barchu’r trigolion a pharcio yn y meysydd parcio priodol yn unig yn hytrach nag ar y strydoedd preswyl. Mae’n annhebygol y dewch chi o hyd i le parcio ar y promenâd.

Os bydd arnoch chi neu eich plentyn angen cymorth i gyrraedd y diwrnod chwarae, cysylltwch gyda ni.


Conwy’s annual celebration of National Playday is on Wednesday 2nd August 2017, we have changed venue for one year only and will be on the beach by Porth Eirias, Colwyn Bay.

Activities this year include, sandcity, treasure hunts, graffiti art, structure building, dressing up, arts and crafts, cooking on the fire, flag making, sand kitchen, volleyball, gloop and lots more.

All for free of course!

Please note, due to the change in location this year’s event will not have a waterslide.

As normal, bring a picnic and clothes you don’t mind getting messy in and play play play.

Please remember that dogs are not allowed on the beach and we would appreciate if adults could refrain from smoking around the activities. Please be respectful of residents and only park in designated carparks rather than residential streets, you are unlikely to be able to park on the prom.

Wrexham will once again be celebrating National Playday with an event held in Wrexham town centre, on Wednesday 2nd August from 12pm to 4pm on Queen Square and Llwyn Isaf (the Guildhall field).
Playday is for people of all ages including babies and toddlers, older children, teenagers, parents, professionals and grandparents, all are invited to join in this free and playful event. Organisations involved in children’s play and playwork from across Wrexham will be coming together to provide a wide range of playful opportunities, including favourites like the giant sandpit, mass water fight, junk play and rope swings.
The aim of this event is to highlight children’s right to play, encouraging people to recognise the value of playing to children, their families and their local communities. In doing this Wrexham’s playday event is part of the local authority’s continued commitment to try ensure all children across the county borough have enough time, space and permission to play.
Approximately 3000 people visited our Playday event last year and we aim to make this year’s even bigger and better, but this can only happen if people come along and join in the fun. All we ask is that you bring along a playful mood and some clothes you don’t mind getting wet and messy. In the past families have brought along picnics and stayed all afternoon!
