Little bee is proud to be a Move Well, Eat Well accredited Early Childhood Service, we are always looking for new and exciting ways to embed the Move Well, Eat Well program within our service. One of the key messages from the program is the importance of ‘Move, Play and Go’ throughout the whole year. We are very passionate about engaging children in ‘huff and puff’ play every day. During the winter months, it can be very difficult to keep active. The Move Well, Eat Well website: http://www.dhhs.tas.gov.au/mwew/families has an array of information for families. However, we are encouraging families to get out and about and explore what’s on within the local community. Some ways we suggest keeping children moving in winter include:
Going to your local indoor pool
Turning up the music and engaging your children in dance
Rugging up and accessing local parks, bike or walking tracks, bonus being they tend to be quieter this time of the year and the children tend to love scootering and bike riding!!
Organising a get together at an activity centre, e.g. Eastside, Inflatable World, Crocs play centre.
‘Google’ fun exercise games to play with children and the ideas and suggestions are plentiful.
Most children enjoy any form of active play if it is with a family member, as long as children are huffing and puffing at the end of the activity, it has been beneficial to their health and well being.
