Big Welsh Rhyme Time is back from 5th – 9th February 2024 and we’d love for you to join in.

The theme for Big Welsh Rhyme Time 2024 will be ‘Rhyming Fun for Everyone’ and we want to make this the most exciting and inclusive Big Welsh Rhyme Time yet.

There will be lots of fantastic new English and Welsh language content including songs, rhymes and videos which can be shared with families and children across Wales, and we would encourage everyone who works with children aged 0 – 5 to get involved.

FREE certificates and stickers can be claimed during registration, with a digital certificate option if printed resources are no longer available.

In February 2023 more than 25,000 children had fun taking part at home or whilst at school, nursery or another early years setting.
