Here’s some Ideas
Activity Hopscotch Description A simple game that challenges your brain and your fitness! What you will need to do  Mark out a court numbered 1-10 with chalk.  Once drawn, throw a marker onto the court (A dice is good)  Each player tries to retrieve it by hopping and jumping. Mark an area with lots of place to hide Get a group and have one person as the seeker The seeker counts to 30 as the others search for places to hide. The first person that is found by a seeker is the seeker for the next game! Find an area large enough to run One person tries to tag the others in the game. If you are tagged, you are now ‘it’ and will have to chase to tag another runner. Discuss with your child a sport they would enjoy. Individual clubs: Tennis, Badminton, Swimming, Cycling Team clubs: Football, Hockey, Netball, Rugby Use a Frisbee, a ball, or both. Make sure you use a large area away from breakable objects!
