A few Ideas for outdoor Physical Activity (while maintaining social distancing)

  • Make it up Monday: (Victoria Day). Make up a dance. Can you include 4 different body parts? High and low movements?
  • Try-it Tuesday:  Create your own obstacle course. Can you include a jumping, throwing and balance activity?
  • Wobbly Wednesday: Practice your balance. Try balancing on your knees, one foot, or your belly. How long can you balance? 
  • Target Thursday: Set up some targets (e.g. toilet paper rolls or water bottles). Practice kicking a ball or pair of socks to knock them down.
  • Family Fun Friday: Who in your family can juggle? Who has the coolest trick?
  • Softball Saturday: Play a game of softball. Use a pair of socks as a ball, your hand as a bat and items around your home for bases.
