It doesn’t have to be sport that requires too much either, try time trials around the garden, an obstacle course using upturned flowerpots and spiralled hoses, or set up a good old-fashioned egg and spoon race!
Gardening is by its very nature a perfect way to stay in shape. Nearly all the major muscle groups are engaged: legs, buttocks, arms, shoulder, neck, back and core and it does this simply by offering enjoyable activities that make you move. This means that one way for fitness fun is to get the little ones out and tending to the garden with you.
Give them their own space, a flowerpot suited to their size. Here, they can play with mud, plant up some easy herbs plants or just create their own mini landscape—it’ll still get them moving.
