  • Family walks are a great way to be active while spending time talking together as a family.

  • Regular physical activity helps to reduce your chances of catching a cold or flu.

  • Need something from the local shops? Leave the car at home and walk instead.

  • A fun way to get active while reading with your kids is to read a book out loud and act out parts of the story. If a character is running, you could run on the spot or around the house too.
