Active Families

It is really important for all members of the family, young and old, to be active. There are lots of ways which you can be active as a family. From fun at the park, family sessions at the leisure centre to downloading apps and taking part as a family. Below are some ideas for you to try.

Family App reviews

A huge thank you to Hayden, who, as part of the Active Families Project run alongside Home-Start South Leicestershire, has provided us with some great reviews on apps related to physical activity. As part of the project which aims to support families to become more active together, Hayden used his interest in technology to try out a range of apps which encourage physical activity. Along with his brother, he tested out the apps on a weekly basis and was able to complete reviews to help others who may be interested in using the apps to help them to become more physically active. These have been particularly useful during lockdown when people were not always able to complete physical activity in their usual, preferred ways. Some of the apps Hayden reviewed were:

  • Pokemon Go
  • Zombies Run
  • Walkr
  • Wokamon
