Breaktime fun! In times like this it’s crucial that we unwind and relax in between intensive sessions of home-schooling or remote working. Check out 10 fun activities below for all ages! –

  1. Table Tennis! – You can easily do this at home – purchase a simple portable net from Amazon like this one and pair with our table tennis balls Hours of active fun to be had!
  2. Create your own obstacle course – inside or out – Jumping over t-shirts, darting in between chairs, cycling across the garden – be as creative as you like! Fun for all ages.
  3. Jump Rope – perfect outdoor summer activity.- Who can be the first to do 100 skips in a row? Too easy? Try it backwards!
  4. Hot Potato! – grab a ball and a team of 3 or more. Imagine the ball is on fire – pass it as quickly as you can, and don’t let it hit the floor! This also works really well with balloons.
