The six-week summer holidays are a long period of time where children have timeout from school, but it is vital to keep their minds and body’s active during their downtime.
For some children it is at school where they get their only exercise, so a long period of time without this can impact their life.
A long period of inactivity can result in loss of motivation, increase in laziness and a decrease of activeness and healthiness. With the increase of technology, children are more likely to be stuck inside looking at screens for hours on end rather than at the local park running around with friends. This is a reason for the increasing rate of obesity, and increasing rates of health problems such as diabetes and heart problems in later life.
Getting children moving can combat all of these issues, from just 30 minutes of active play a day.
Activities to Do
- Visiting the local park
- Encourage children to play sports such as football with their friends
- Walk the dog
- Go on a bike ride
- Go to the swimming pool and le the children splash around and improve their swimming skills
- Turn up the music and get the children dancing
