As part of the Stay Active takeover this week with Character Options, we’ve been looking at how important regular exercise is for helping to maintain both healthy body and healthy mind. But, with the seasonal weather in England, outdoor sports and activities aren’t to everyone’s taste! That’s why, as part of the Stay Active takeover, we wanted to share with you all our fun, family-friendly ideas for staying active all year round!

Stream Kid-Friendly Workouts

It’s true that the great outdoors offer kids the space to explore, play and be active, but when the weather isn’t supporting those fresh air dreams there are plenty of good options for staying active indoors. There are so many exercise resources online and ready to be streamed. During lockdown, Joe Wicks created some fabulous videos to keep children moving. But head to YouTube and you’ll find plenty of great activity videos for your family to enjoy.

For some more great links, check out this page from Sport England on online exercise platforms.

Dance Parties!

What easier way to stay active than popping on some music to dance away the stresses of the day?! Everyone loves to dance… and at home you can do so like nobody’s watching!

The Stay Active Collection

The Stay Active collection from Character Options includes family-inclusive toys and games that can be played with both inside and out. Ideal for helping families to improve their general wellbeing, no matter the weather, this collection will bring families together for hours of entertainment, whilst helping to promote good physical and mental health. Find out more about this brilliant new collection here.

Indoor / Outdoor Hopscotch

Hopscotch is an age old activity that is fun for all! If it’s not raining, all you’ll need is a stick of chalk to draw out a hopscotch pattern on the driveway or patio. But if it’s too cold or rainy, just grab some masking tape and map out the pattern on your kitchen floor…
