BOREDOM BUSTERS To keep you active:
Set up an obstacle course in your home or garden. Inside? Use furniture, cushions, pillows and mark out stations, or create ladders with masking tape!
In the garden? Use chalk to mark out stations. Your kids could even use their art skills to help to create station cards with specific exercises drawn on such jumping jacks, skipping and press ups.
A great activity to get blood flow to the brain and work on those core muscles to break up home-schooling. Time yourselves – who can hold the handstand against the wall for the longest?
This one is great for a burst of physical activity to wake up the mind and body between school subjects. Find a plain wall and create a number wall out of masking tape. Use the tape to mark out numbers on the wall in a random order. Now shout out random numbers and see how quickly they can touch the number. Place some high and some low to really get them jumping, bending and twisting. You can even work on their balance by having them touch number sequences whilst balancing on one leg!
This one’s for the little kids! Blow bubbles and let them happily race around popping as many as they can!
Order a cheap disco light and glow sticks from offline and schedule a weekly disco in your diary for the whole family to attend. Get dressed up for this just as you normally would do for an event – party clothes on, hair and holographic rave make-up done, disco shoes at the ready!
Dig out those balloons from the junk draw or order some offline as there are lots of creative games we can be playing with a balloon. Balloon volleyball is great as it gets you all connecting and adds competition, and you don’t risk any of your precious ornaments, unlike using a real ball. “Don’t let the ball touch the floor” is another fun one I used to love playing with my brother in my youth along with balloon “puff” races – whose balloon can reach the finish line first using just your breath to blow the balloon along its course. Perhaps, grab your rackets and have a game of balloon tennis in the garden!
Create a playlist of your little one’s favourite tracks, press play and bust a move, break a sweat and see their little faces light up.
Practice different skipping techniques or get involved in some old-school playground skipping games, where two people hold the rope at each end.
Kids playground games are just the best aren’t they?! Hopscotch can be recreated with chalk, masking tape or electric tape! Indoors across the landing or outdoors in the garden.
Boxing on the pads lets out some serious aggression and frustration – something that our little ones may very well be feeling right now – constantly cooped up inside! If you are lucky enough to own some kids gloves and pads, dig them out the garage now and get practising combos! You can also order mitts from many online shops.
Are there a few of you in your family? The partner wheelbarrow race is a tough workout on those arms and core! Who will be the winner?
Have a hula hoop hiding somewhere in that garden shed? Dig it out and get wiggling!
Work on cardio, patience and balance in this fun, traditional party game.
Hide clues around the house (as far apart as you can!) and have the kids race to find each one. Finish with some “treasure” at the end!
You don’t have to purchase a fancy kid’s parachute game online. A simple large, double or king-size sheet will do! Have member of the family hold a corner each and then flap up and down as each of you run underneath. Put teddies on top and create a wavy sea for them to sail.
Set up your own carnival in the garden! Who can knock down the most tins? Who can get the balls in the buckets? Can you create a DIY crazy golf trial?
Grab those pillows and it’s game on!
Tie t-shirts together or use a skipping rope! Ready, steady, PULL!
If you are lucky enough to have a large garden, get creative with races. One-legged race, three-legged, sack race (use pillowcases) and egg & spoon!
Make the most of that “one hour of exercise per day” and jump on those bikes or scooters for a few laps of the neighbourhood.
Many of us have a game of twister hidden away under the stairs, gathering dust! Now’s the time dig it out and challenge your whole family.
