Active Story Time
Active Storytime with Buddy the dog, created by Marian Rodgers in Clare Sports Partnership. During this difficult time, we now want to let Buddy into your homes! Go with Buddy the dog on one of his adventures! On these adventure kids will need to run, jump, crawl and many more fun activities! Be sure to modify activities if your friend has a disability. An example would be where buddy crawls, just wheel around the room! Woof, woof!!

The Professional Development Service for Teachers (PDST) has developed a number of resources to support play in a playground or school setting. It has the benefit of including game that need little or no equipment so are great for everyone to get involved. See Playground Games Participant’s Handout
Becoming more active doesn’t have to mean organised sports, it can be any outdoor activities like Hopscotch or Kerbs, or if the weather keeps you indoors, Blind Man’s Bluff or Simon Says. Introducing your kids to games that you played when you were their age is a great way for everyone to get moving and active. Here are some ideas from Safefood EU to get you started – Safe Food Games
