Join the Movement
Sport England have pulled together some of the most useful tips and ideas on how you can keep active in and around the home for their new Join the Movement campaign. If you’ve found any great ways to keep active then use the hashtag #StayInWorkOut on social media to share your ideas with others.
This Girl Can
This Girl Can has teamed up with Disney to create dance routines to help mums get active with their children. Capturing ways in which families can get moving to the songs they love. You can learn their moves or put your own spin on the routine. At the end of the day, it’s about breaking a sweat and having fun!
There’s no need to let challenging times stop children getting the activity they need. Even when you can’t get outside, there’s still loads of great indoor children’s activities to get them moving and have fun as a family. Resources are also available to encourage healthy eating and family recipes.
