Family activities

With options limited we know it can be tricky finding ways to keep the kids active, or to get active with them. Below are some ideas and links to exciting challenges, activities involving nature and those you can do indoors.

Park Games – got a ball handy, skipping ropes or maybe a bat? Or maybe you have no equipment at home; either way head to the park or local greenspace or playground and get playing!

Games like “hide and seek”, “stuck in the mud”, rounders and football are a great way to have fun with the family and maybe attract some interest from new friends. For more ideas visit the Change 4 Life website [external link].
