The Weekly Active Play Ideas are back! Mighty Movers CBR has created another 10 ideas to help you, your family, your playgroup or early childhood education centre inject some more active play into your everyday. We’re kicking off with #11 Horsing Around.

This idea has been tried and tested by my preschooler and I think he’s worn a track around our dining table! Maybe even worn me out a little joining him on the riding adventures.

With Christmas present wrapping just around the corner – remember to keep your long cardboard tubes from the wrapping paper as they make excellent impromptu horses to ride.

How can you help to support and spread the word on Active Play?

  • Try these play ideas at home or with groups of kids
  • Follow us on Facebook – and like, comment or share
  • Share these play ideas with other families either through play, conversations, Facebook or printed copies
  • Let us know if your family, playgroup or centre need help with making active play part of your everyday

Mighty Movers CBR is an initiative of the Bluearth Foundation run in partnership with ACT Playgroups and supported by the ACT Government under the ACT Health Promotion Grants Program. We hope it helps you, your children and your family Move More, Sit Less.
