Sitting VolleyballCheck out ‘sitting volleyball’ from the Paralympics – you could play this with as few as two people, ideally with a beach ball or parents could try it in their living rooms with a balloon (if neither is available then a soft ball or sponge ball is recommended for children). You could create a net with objects or just make a line.
Dance, dance, dance!When the children are inside and need some time out of the sun, you could put on one of these videos. It’s a great way to get them going in the morning as well - children love to dance and they’ll love these videos!
