Grab your water bottle, put your trainers on and dive right in with bags of enthusiasm for teaching and sharing the 'FUNDA WAY'.

Kids Activity 1: Treasure Hunt 

Having a Treasure Hunt is possibly the most FUN activity for you and your child to enjoy, even though you have to do a little bit of preparation hiding the clues and treasures.

If you aren't sure what to hide you could hide anything from toy cars to coins or even chocolate. You can also google readymade treasure hunts and start with one of those. 

This will keep your children busy for hours and also keep them active, running around the garden to find the treasures. Also, the excitement of finding treasure is the ultimate fun for children of all ages!

This type of activity has lots of benefits too, but the main benefit is that it enables all of those important Critical Skills needed for home, school and life, supporting your child's education, health and future.

The Critical Skills Needed For The Ultimate GROWTH Mindset!

  • Exploration
  • Discovery
  • Problem Solving
  • Bouncing Back
  • Communication
  • Helping Others
  • Organisation ... And So Many More!

Remember to have FUN together as a family and TURN OFF all technology and distractions around YOU!!!

Kids Activity 2: Yoga

If you prefer a more calming but FUN exercise for you and your child, you could do a simple activity like Yoga. This can help your child to increase concentration levels in school and in general.

Also, it can teach them to use their body in a healthy way, it is a good foundation for a lifelong, healthy and active lifestyle.

Now it’s time to lay out some Yoga mats, put on some soothing music, look at our FUNDA yoga exercises and begin the process of inner peace with your children. 

Kids Activity 3: Hide & Seek

Hide & Seek is an amazing and FUN game that your child won’t get bored of. A child probably couldn't think of anything better than running around the house or garden trying to find the best hiding place.

To add a twist to the game of hide and seek; you could hide from your child and leave a little trail behind, so they can find you. If you have multiple children it would be a great idea to offer prizes for the winner it’s always good to have some sibling rivalry. 

Kids Activity 4: Family Sports Day

If your child loves Sports Day at school why not bring sports day to your home by creating one of your own in the garden! Parents VS Kids or Boys VS Girls? If you need more team players to get your family and friends involved.

You can have relay races, nerf fights, water fights (if it's summer), egg and spoon race, sack race, tug of war and many more FUN activities for you and your family and friends to enjoy.

Activity 5: Movement Skills Activity Dice
