Giving Tuesdays is a weekly play-based programme that takes place every Tuesday afternoon for children with varying disabilities.

Little is known on how play supports children with a disability in terms of the development of executive and 21st century skills. Understanding what children can do through play is a process of discovery and Giving Tuesdays provides the opportunity for further exploration and observation on this.

Over the last one year, we have had over 10 families who came regularly for the programme, where they engage in different forms of artful play - painting, role-playing, tinkering and more. Through different activities, they have been able to express their creative potential, develop crucial skills such as communication and collaboration, and form new meaningful relationships. We are also witnessing how parents of these families are gradually forming a community, as they interact and share relatable experiences.

With the first programme piloting at the Children's Centre for Creativity, it is now making its way directly into schools (and other spaces) to support children with disabilities.

We are seeking for more donations to support more children to be part of Giving Tuesdays.

About the Charity

Playeum is an independent charity organisation (IPC) that champions children through play, creativity and the arts. We advocate for children's voices and the development of crucial 21st century skills such as problem-solving, communication, collaboration, critical thinking and more, through the play and the arts.

Through our deep-impact programmes and outreach that enhance social-emotional learning and confidence building, we work closely with children under our community partners such as Family Service Centres (FSCs), Children's Home & Child Protection Services, and as well as children with special needs to ensure that all children have the space and time to play creatively.
