I don’t know what equipment you have at home or what the weathers going to be like so I’ve tried to keep this accessible to everyone.
You don’t have to complete everything. Choose things that you think you will enjoy – and try and push yourself!!!
Have fun and ask family members to join in. Let me know how you got on and try and post me some photos.

  1. Egg and spoon race – use whatever you have, apple/potato – how many laps can you do?
  2. Sack race – maybe use a pillow case – ask an adult!!!!!!! – how far can you go?
  3. Daily 15 – can you hop/skip/jump/run/walk for 15 minutes
  4. Instead of splat the teacher, splat the adult with a wet sponge – please ask the adult!!! – how many times can you hit them on the legs?
  5. Can you create an obstacle course? How many times can you go round it?
  6. Throw and clap. How many times can you throw a ball/pair of socks up , clp your hands and catch it?
  7. Blindfold balance. Wrap a blindfold/scarf around your eyes – no cheating!!! – and see how long you can balance on one leg without holding onto anything.
  8. Book balance. Put a book – more than 1 if you want a challenge!!! – on your head and see how long you can walk about for before the book drops.
