Physical development is vital for happy and healthy children. The NHS guidelines state that children should be physically active for at least 3 hours a day. This can become more challenging whilst at home, especially if you do not have access to an outdoor space.
This morning we made an assault course in the big garden, which could be replicated on a small scale within your own gardens or indoors using objects and furniture from around your home. The children were involved in the designing of the assault course, choosing where thing should go and how it should work, which in itself provides multiple opportunities for creative thinking and imaginative play.
What creative physical opportunities are you coming up with for your child at home?
