How to keep yourself and your kids active during self-isolation:

  • Go to the local park, or any open green area for a walk together, a cycle, a scoot.
  • Walk around the local neighbourhood.
  • Bring some chalk outside and draw hopscotch markings, have a game.
  • Teach your child to skip or have a skipping competition.
  • Challenge your child to teach you a new skill or activity that they learned in PE class at school.
  • Grab a football, basketball or even a tennis ball. Be creative with the amount of different ways you can play with this. Throw it, bounce it, kick it: your child will come up with lots of ideas if you ask them.
  • Be active in the house too. There are lots of things you can do, from active video gaming to games like Twister or any of the websites above.

Do remember to keep building in activity that really involves you and your child moving your whole body as this will give you heart health benefits as well as skill development benefits. Again, you can do this outside your front door, in the back garden or even better, in a large open green area such as a park or big field if you are lucky enough to be able to access one.
