Whether your goal is to keep your kids active or get them off their electronic devices, here are some ideas to get the kids moving this winter.

Get outdoors

  • Put on coats, hats and scarves and head outside.
  • Explore your local park and collect leaves, sticks and stones and get creative with them when you get home.
  • If it’s windy, fly a kite.
  • Visit the beach or a local creek and explore the rock pools.
  • Go on a hike, the kids will soon warm up

Bring the outdoors in

  • Bring some of your outdoor toys inside like hula hoops, jump ropes, and balls.
  • Utilise spaces like the garage for games such as roller skating, hopscotch and table tennis.
  • Try balloon volleyball – create a makeshift net and use a balloon as the ball.
  • Create an indoor obstacle course – use pillows, couches and the kids won’t even realise they are exercising as it’s so much fun
