Did you share Balloon Catch with your playgroup families and friends last week? Did it get them moving and having fun?

This week is Active Play Idea #2 – Discovery Dig.  No sandpit?  Not a problem, we’ve included an option for families without a sandpit, which doubles as a ‘less mess’ indoor version.

Discovery Dig isn’t only for toddlers and preschoolers. Sitting bubs love to be amongst the action of Discovery Dig, and bubs in arms will enjoy watching the other kids and what’s going on – so encourage parents to include them in the fun too!

Mighty Movers is a project of the Bluearth Foundation, delivered in partnership with ACT Playgroups Association and supported by ACT Health. We hope it helps you and your families Move More, Sit Less.  You can follow Mighty Movers on Facebook fb.me/MightyMoversCBR and “Like” this idea there too. Or, if you’d like to join the Mighty Movers online program simply:

  • send an email to nsadlier@bluearth.org with the subject ‘Mighty Movers’, and
  • include your name and the age of your child/children.

Bluearth will send you a bit more information about the program, and then each week you’ll be sent an active play idea that’s easy to set-up at home or your playgroup – using items that can be found mostly around the home.

If you have any questions about the Mighty Movers program – please email Nicole on nsadlier@bluearth.org
