Embrace dirt

#EmbraceDirt with Persil

Persil believes every child should have the opportunity to learn and develop through outdoor play and exploration. Our goal is to get all families to #EmbraceDirt and experience life, with all its messiness. Join us!

56% of children have an hour or less of outside play time each day


Get involved with Outdoor Classroom Day 

Have your child join us and millions of others around the world for an adventure on Outdoor Classroom Day on 17 May.  

On Outdoor Classroom Day, one or all of your child’s school lessons that day are held outdoors. Sounds like fun? It is!

Teachers who participate in Outdoor Classroom Day notice how excited and enthusiastic the children get as they discover the natural world first hand. There are other lasting benefits too: 

  • Kids who spend more time outdoors can be more confident, more focused, and better behaved. 
  • They also improve essential life skills like problem solving, working as part of a team, and communication skills.

Ask your child’s teachers to sign up and take part!
