After a busy term 3, we are all looking forward to the School Holidays, warmer weather and some family time! Need some fun ideas for school holiday activities for kids?
Each year in Australia, studies show an increase in childhood obesity. If kids learn to be active early & enjoy movement and exercise now, it will stay with them throughout adulthood as well!
With this in mind, and the kids’ home for a couple of weeks, check out our Top 5 Holiday Activity Ideas, ensuring your children are active and keep moving this school break!
(1) Scoot into Spring
Why not head to the local bike path for a scooter session with the kids. So great for their co-ordination, balance, fitness and lots of outdoor fun.
(2) Water Fun
Make the most of this warmer weather! Set up the slip n slide, fill up the water balloons, slip, slop, slap and have some fun!
(3) Gymnastics Holiday Clinic!
It’s holiday clinic time! Calling all Gymnastics Ninja Warriors! We will be keeping kids challenged, happy and moving at our Ninja Warrior Holiday Clinic. As well as taking on our Delta Ninja course, children will be busy learning new gymnastics activities and socialising with new friends in the gym. Stay tuned for how to book (and check out some of the action from our last Ninja Warrior Holiday clinic here)!
Head outside and create the kids own vege/herb/flower garden. Use muscles while digging, planting and watering and watch them grow!
(5) Make Your Own
The kids will no doubt have lots of plans for the holidays, with visits to the movies, theme parks & play dates. So why not make your own fun at home as well? Frisbee throw and catch is great for hand eye co-ordination. Back yard tiggy, really gets the body moving! Grab some chalk on the driveway for your own game of hop scotch, practising left and right hops & two feet jumps. And nothing beats a good old dance off with musical statues! Family fun and great bonding with your kids as well!
