Active Play Everyday


Active play is any form of regular physical activity that babies and children do, which includes moderate to vigorous bursts of high energy, and which raises their heart rate and makes them "huff and puff".

For a baby, active play may include reaching out to touch something, rolling over or balancing in a sitting position. For a child it may include running or jumping.

Active play can occur indoors or outdoors, alone or with family or friends.

Active play may be structured or unstructured. Structured active play is generally some kind of organised play or activity such as swimming lessons or a game that involves rules, time limits or special equipment. Unstructured active play is generally some kind of spontaneous or opportunistic play or activity such as dancing to music at home or playing in a park.
