Active Families – GET MOVING February mid-term!
During the February mid-term break we want to encourage EVERYONE to get out and keep active! Our Active Families pack will do just that! With daily FUN activities for everyone, looking after your physical and mental wellbeing.
Active Families – Fife Pilgrims Way Challenge 2021!
During lockdown we want everyone to get out and keep active – We are challenging families across Fife to ‘virtually’ travel Fife’s 70 mile long “Pilgrims Way” as part of your daily exercise.
EVERYONE in your household can take part
The aim is to walk every day at a pace that suits you
Can be walked or wheeled! (e.g.wheel chairs, buggies, walking frames, scooters or bikes!)
This can be done on local paths, around your local park or in your garden
You can use pedometers, walking apps, fitbits or smart watches to count your steps
You can do this as an individual or get together with your household or remotely with your friends/work colleagues and complete this as a team challenge, splitting the distance between you.
Keep track of your progress using our printable map and colour in the footsteps to see how far you can get. Click on the link below to download/print a copy of the wall chart.
