Active play

Active – or free range - play is the kind of play that kids get up to when left to their own devices. It's about exploring, roaming (not necessarily far, but further than their bedrooms or back garden), playing outside and enjoying open spaces.

Many adults have fond memories of 'playing out' on the pavement or in the street as children. For today's children it's quite a different story, but it doesn't have to be – a little planning and imagination can make ‘playing out’ an important part of your child’s life too.

Once you've started to explore your neighbourhood, either on foot or by bike, it's easy to see how you can be active and stay local in other parts of your life.
