Online Activities – Exercise and Active

Has anyone else found it impossible to try and keep the kids active whilst home schooling? We are currently self isolating and our garden is tiny. So we have all heard about Joe Wicks but we are trying to be inventive about how to get moving and found lots of other great resources, both local and national. Enjoy.

British Cycling

British Cycling are running daily activities for kids. Using British Cycling’s HSBC UK Ready Set Ride games and activities, the daily activities will be shared through our YouTube, Facebook and Twitter channels at 11:00 each day, until Friday 24 April. They are suitable for children from as young as 18 months to eight years old, and many can be done without a bike – making them perfect for indoor play.

Cosmic Kids

We love these yoga classes and often start the day watching one. They have videos on yoga and mindfulness which are between 10 minutes and half an hour. Our favourite so far is the Frozen one which you can check out below.

Andy’s Wild Workouts

These are another firm favourite of ours. This one is extremely easy for younger children to follow and the stories are great fun.

Youthercise

Join the Facebook Live sessions on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday for exercise with a theme – just for kids.

Just Dance Kids

Dance videos for computer games that you can follow – these look lots of fun.

Jump Start Jonny

We have not tried this one yet but I hear that whilst parents may find it a bit much, kids love it. One on our to do list for this week certainly.

Go Noodle

There are loads of free videos on here for keeping active and also mindfulness which is especially helpful whilst in lockdown.

Fever Dance Company

This dance company is doing free dance classes every weekend and you can also catch up on any you missed their You Tube channel.

Pennine Gymnastics Club

Gymnastic lessons for different ages.

Oti Mabuse

Step by step dance routines the whole family can learn.
