Across the UK, many families with young children are now finding themselves juggling working from home and entertaining little ones. It can almost seem like there’s too much to fit into a day. The Government’s target is 60 minutes of exercise a day for children aged five to 18 years.
To help, Start-Rite has worked with Brytespark, experts in human movement, to create a series of filmed, fun, home-based exercise routines especially for children to help keep kids moving while they’re off school.
Called ‘Take 5-4-5’, each routine includes five intervals – a warm up, high activity, low activity, another high activity and a cool down – that lasts for five minutes.
These short, but high intensity workouts, will keep children’s feet active and minds healthy, delivering many of the benefits of 23 minutes of aerobic activity.
The routines (filmed before social distancing) have been designed for age groups including, pre-school children aged 5 and under, primary school children aged 5-to-9, and older children aged 10 plus.
For the younger children, the workouts are more story led, to keep them entertained and focussed throughout the session.
Toddlers are included too with a series of fun, short stretches for little ones that mobilise joints, loosen muscles and nerves and increase blood flow.
