Fun ideas for play
Play more and Change4Life!
Did you know that if we carry on as we are, 9 out of 10 of today’s kids risk growing up with dangerous levels of fat in their bodies? This can lead to serious illnesses like heart disease, cancer and type 2 diabetes in later life.
We all want our children to grow up to be happy, healthy adults but it can sometimes be hard to know how to achieve this. Change4Life is here to help us all eat well, move more and live longer.
Playing is a great way for kids to be up and about and keeping active, whether playing organised games, or just moving around and enjoying themselves.
The Play4Life information packs give you loads of tips and information that make playing fun for everyone. You’ll find advice on how to support children to play indoors and outdoors as well as ways to keep them safe while they’re burning off all that energy. It also covers reasons why play is so good for kids, like building their confidence and helping them develop new skills.
