A Run About in the Park

Sometimes it's great to just go to the park and have a run about, in fact it's amazing how much kids seem to enjoy the simple act of running in circles.

The perfect way to get them out into the fresh air and an easy way of getting them active without them even realising they are exercising.


Running, jumping, rolling, throwing, catching and playing, so much and all you need is some grass, oh and maybe a ball and a frisbee.

Getting active needn't cost the earth either, you can take a picnic to eat and just find a large space to run about in, whether it is is a local park, national trust house or even your own garden. Make the most of the summer, enjoy running about and being free.

It's something we love to do and you get to make memories too.

    1. I think we all do to some extent, made to feel like we need to run 10k to be fit but to be honest fresh air and lots of space are good for the body and soul :)

  3. We are definitely a park family too and our boys get cabin fever after just 1 day of being indoors. It is great to be out and about. Popping over from #ActiveFamily

    1. It's the best, both of mine love to just run around, lots of running and fresh air usually equals a sleepy child ;)
