Activity Bags

Project Description


Teach and building fundamental movement skills (throwing, catching, jumping, striking, running, kicking, agility, balance, coordination) is important for a child’s physical development. When children feel more confident and competent with each of these motor skills in different types of environments they are more likely to have fun and enjoy sport and physical activity, supporting life-long recreation. The Healthy Kids Community Challenge Activity Bags focus on supporting fundamental movement skill development with the support of activity cards, tips and skills to try at home or outside, equipment and a notebook to share ideas. There are 20 different bags, with different activity cards and equipment. Bags can be borrowed from the library or at a local participating elementary school.
