Daily physical activity can be really beneficial during these difficult times; helping to keep children active and providing some light relief as a family. Whether it’s a Disney dance along routine, Cosmic Yoga or a Joe Wick’s work out there is plenty to give a go. By encouraging your child to take part in some daily activity you can also help to improve their metal well being and support home learning.
Below are a list of resources that will help the young people in your family to get the daily 60 minutes of activity recommended by the UK Chief Medical Officer (CMO) in fun ways.
All the resources listed here are for activities designed to be carried out indoors or, if available, a garden.
Children and young people can go outside for one form of exercise a day, such as:
• a walk with members of their household
• a run with members of their household
• a cycle with members of their household
but remember all outdoor exercise should only be carried out locally.
Children and young people should always follow the latest official advice on social distancing, which means making sure that they and their parent or carer stay more than 2 metres from others (including friends and other family members).
