Active play dates and parties - What to do when you're outnumbered!

Anyone who has ever hosted a children’s party or playdate will know that active kids are happy kids. Planning a few active games in advance can help make sure that everybody has fun, and you don’t end up playing referee to bored and squabbling youngsters. If you find yourself suddenly in charge of a few more kids than usual, here are some great ideas for keeping them active, interested and (hopefully) behaving beautifully.


Fit For Sport Anniversary Climbers Support Yellow Ball Foundation

Dean Horridge and Fit For Sport have been engaging and educating children through activity for 25 years, and, in recent years, have proudly been providing financial assistance for children to join activity programmes.

We must stay focused on active lifestyles for our children in 2016

During the latter part of 2015, many a headline was dedicated to the UK’s battle against childhood obesity.

Small spaces, big activities

Wet weather, frosty mornings and dark evenings make it more difficult to think up ways to keep moving – and unsurprisingly, children aren’t active enough in winter, according to new research released last week from the University of Cambridge*. Scientists tested 700 children and found that in the colder months, they spent only 47 minutes a day on their feet, compared to 65 minutes in the summer.

The current statistics on daily average screen time for children (outside of normal school hours) is six and a half hours, more than twice as much compared to 1995. This gets higher as children move into adolescence (up to eight hours a day for teenage boys) and just 16% of girls and 21% of boys aged 5 – 18 years old are getting enough physical activity to maintain a healthy lifestyle*.
