family activities

Our #WalkingFromHome activity booklet for families features 14 sets of activities for primary school-aged children. Each resource sheet includes three activities; one for the little ones, one for older children, and one special indoor activity.

Whilst our Activity Diary is a fun way for children to record what they've learned on their walks.

We created these for delivery in the classroom, but you can easily adapt them for remote learning or for families to use at home.

Small Steps

We know that older people are as diverse as the population as a whole, and it is hard to generalise about what will help or suit everyone over 60.

Our Small Steps resources offer a range of ideas and examples of success for people to pick from to suit their circumstances. Choose the one that most suits you from the three options below. 

Coming soon...

Our Small Steps videos will help show you how to put some of these ideas into practice.

Home workouts

If you are self-isolating then you should not leave your home, even to go for a walk. But if Captain Sir Tom Moore taught us anything, it's that you can still stay active in the home.

If you don’t have a garden to do laps in then Sport England has lots of great ways to stay active in the home and One You have some 10-minute home workout videos here. 

To find out more about self-isolating, including when you should self-isolate, visit the NHS website.
