Exercise together

Have fun exercising as a family.  Children enjoy going for walks and playing in the park.  Take along a ball to kick and throw, or even a frisbee

Play some music

Play music that has set movements and actions children can do. Join in. Exaggerate the movements encouraging children to participate. Wiggle,jiggle and shake!

Go on walks

Go on walks to explore the environment. Talk about the change of the seasons and collect things from nature. You can also pack a healthy picnic.

Get some wheels

Go to markets, garage sales or check out the newspaper for second hand bikes and scooters. Remember to buy a safety helmet too. You can go for rides on local bike tracks.

Plant a vegetable garden

Plant a vegetable garden in your backyard. Encourage your children to check the plants regularly and water and weed them.

Make a treasure hunt

Treasure hunts can be fun, use your child's toys, hide them in the garden or the home. Ask your children to create a treasure hunt for you!
