Resource Info

Being active doesn't just mean playing a sport or being part of a club - there are lots of ways we are active in our daily lives - and there may be lots of ways we can be MORE active too!

Help children to think about their activity levels during the week - what do they do? Perhaps it's going to the park or walking to school - write their actions in the basketballs. If they can't think of enough activities to fill the balls - then it's time to think of ways they can incorporate more exercise into their week.
