Make sure that you are keeping yourselves active throughout the day. Try to go on a daily walk around your local area. If you can’t, look at doing some active activity in your home. There are so many great resources out there to try:

Geography:

Make a Treasure Hunt:

Follow the steps to create a treasure hunt for the members of your household:

  1. Choose a theme for your treasure hunt. Something that you like would be best, such as – Pirates, Disney Princesses, dinosaurs, football, etc.
  2. Plan your clues. Use the internet to help you with this. The clues will be needed to help the players get from one place to the other so make sure they are clear and easy to understand. Your clues could be simply questions to direct people to certain places.
  3. Plan your treasure. At the end, the first person to get there finds the treasure! What is it they are going to find?
  4. Hide your clues. Make sure you send everyone away so you can hide the clues without being seen.
  5. Send everyone out on the treasure hunt. Remember, explain the rules before they start.

Use the internet to help you if you are struggling with how to create your treasure hunt and remember to have fun!
