Activities for Active Kids

Keeping the kids active at home

Kids should aim to be active for at least 60 minutes a day. This can be achieved through active travel, playground fun and being active when around the house.

Whilst this sounds like a lot of time, there are several ways to ensure they get their recommended physical activity. This could be anything from walks, to games around the house. The same goes for any children living with a disability – we’ve got some accessible activity ideas to get you started.

We’ve teamed up with Norfolk’s School Sports Partnerships to give schools, parents, and carers handy resources to get kids active every day of the school week! This should help ensure they have an active week, whilst mixing it up and keeping things exciting.

Click the links below to access a library of free, high-quality themed resources covering a wide range of activities for children at home. These are for primary and secondary schools, and also Early Years, nursery and other childcare settings.
