GET OUT­SIDE

South Waikato News - - Backyard Banter -

In­stead of wor­ry­ing about how you’ll keep your kids en­ter­tained these school hol­i­days, em­brace the ex­tra time (and the ex­tra hours of sun­light) and en­cour­age them to swap their screens for the great out­doors. Set up a chal­lenge course around the back­yard (think: crawl un­der the tram­po­line then climb over the pic­nic ta­ble) and add their cho­sen sport into the mix to keep their skills up (think: drib­ble a bas­ket­ball from one end of the drive­way to the other or kick five goals into the back of the net).
