Get Flying With Children’s Activity Week!
30th April marks the start of Children’s Activities Week in the UK. This new event celebrates all the benefits of groups, clubs and activities for children’s social and physical development.
The week aims to showcase the thousands of opportunities for children to get involved in clubs and activities, whether for toddlers, after school or during holidays and weekends. It’s been organised by the Children’s Activities’ Association, a Community Interest Company which supports schools and community groups to provide the highest standards of safety, care and development opportunities when running children’s activities.
As a keen supporter of anything encouraging children to get active, the team at Kozi Kidz were eager to find out what they’ve got planned. Here are the ways you can get involved:
- The World Record Attempt
If you’re quick, you can join CBeebies presenter Sid Sloane in a World Record Attempt! Sid will lead thousands of children in a short, active song and dance routine at 10.15 GMT on Monday 30 April. To be part of it, take a look at the video here.
‘Watch Me Fly’ is this year’s theme, celebrating how every child can reach for the sky. Get dressed up in your favourite superhero, butterfly, fairy, rocket, ladybird (check out our blog on ladybirds here if you want to make a project of it!) or anything else with wings that takes your fancy! Many schools and nurseries are participating – if yours isn’t yet, let them know about it!
- Support Caudwell Children
Children’s Activity Week is fundraising for Caudwell Children – a charity that provides practical and emotional support to disabled children and their families. They provide equipment, expert advice, support services and holiday opportunities to help disabled children live life to their fullest potential. Read all about their important work here.
If it’s too late for your local groups to get involved this time, there’s always next year! In the meantime, we’d love to hear about the local groups and clubs you’re involved with. How do they get your kids engaged and active? Let us know on our Facebook or Instagram profiles, and we will follow up with a little competition to celebrate!
