Summer Holiday Activity Ideas

Are you looking for some fun, activity ideas to keep children entertained and active over the upcoming Summer holidays? True Physio, Sale, have shared their thoughts on why it’s important to maintain activity, the short and longer term benefits, and shared some of their local favourite activities with us.


Why is it important for children to stay active? It can be hard to keep our children entertained over the holidays (though we have had a lot of practice of them being at home recently). But keeping active is really important.  Research shows that regular activity makes for stronger bones, promotes joint health, improves balance and stability on your feet, reduces the risk of obesity and improves physical fitness, as well as contributing to an improved psychological well-being and mental health.


Ultimately, getting children involved and actively encouraging a mindset of a lifelong involvement in activity, promotes good health, social interaction (making friends and developing ‘teamworking-skills’) and an improved well-being all around. This can only be a benefit to our younger generations.


Inactivity is directly linked to being overweight and significantly increases the risk of heart disease and diabetes, in addition to numerous other chronic diseases. However, more current research has now shown that if you are in a normal weight category, you can still have a risk of developing disease though being inactive. With that being said, it doesn’t matter when you start getting active, as long as you start……


At True Physio, we are often encouraging people to be more active and to get stronger to help prevent pain and other problems. There’s no better time to start than when your children are young. So, with the long summer holidays creeping up on us, True Physio have been talking to our local friends and clubs to put together some ideas for local Summer holiday clubs that your children can attend, be active, and get the chance to connect with other children over the Summer break.
