Daily Personal Challenges for Kids!

Daily Personal Challenges for Kids with Active Northumberland PE and School Sport


We all know how tricky it is to keep the kids entertained whilst having to stay indoors but it’s important now as much as ever to stay active for our physical as well as mental health.

At Active Northumberland PE and Sport we’ve come up with some daily personal challenges for kids to keep them entertained but also help them to stay active at home.

The team have specially designed 8 challenges which can be done indoors or even in the garden! Kids can use the scorecard below to record their results for each challenge - they can even record multiple attempts if they wish to see if they improve the more they practice!


Need some inspiration? You can view our fitness staff taking part in the challenges themselves at the Active Northumberland PE and Sport Facebook page.
