Nurseries, primary schools and other settings

If you're a nursery, primary school or other setting we'd love you to take part in Pyjamarama on 1 May, and we've got digital packs tailored just for you.

The packs contain posters, cut-out badges, activities, ideas and inspriration for your day in pyjamas - and you can add to the packs with the activities on this page. Note: the Primary pack also contains Early Years resources.

To help you spread the word about Pyjamarama, we've also put together a handy social media toolkit full of tips and ready-made images for your posts.
