Home Activities

Platt Bridge Start Well Family Centre have created some activities for you and your child to complete at home during this difficult time. It’s easier when you help them find activities that they enjoy – and that they can do as part of everyday family life.

Tips for encouraging active children

You can help your child be active by being a good role model and sending positive messages about being physically active.

Ways to do this include:

  • being active yourself – your child will be more likely to follow your lead
  • giving your child praise and encouragement if an activity is proving a bit hard for him
  • trying to make some time to have fun playing actively with your child – it’s great to find something you both enjoy doing
  • supporting but not coaching your child when he’s learning something new – just try saying ’I enjoy watching you play’
