Active grandparenting

Grandchildren will keep you on your toes, there’s no doubting that and if you can’t beat them, join them!

If you’re looking for the an excuse to do more exercise then look no further than your own grandchildren. Children thrive on attention and getting adults involved in the activities they love. Why not consider:
·tGoing for a bike ride together. Take time to chat about things along the way.
·tCreate a garden. Pottering around will keep you mobile and help children understand the process of growing plants and vegetables and they taste better too!
·tTeach your grandchildren the games you used to play, hopscotch, skipping and ball games are all loved by kids. Even if you have limited physical ability, something gentle like tai chi will help their balance and calm them down.
·tTeach them useful skills such as knitting, sewing and darning! These will stand them in good stead for the rest of their lives.

Most importantly, enjoy the time you spend with your grandchildren. All too soon they’ve grown up and flown the nest.
