Stuck at home? Here are some healthy ideas to keep kids active and happy with our Bizzy@Home Learning Hub

Once again, the COVID-19 pandemic has closed our schools and parents around the country are bravely taking on the role of teacher as well as juggling work and numerous other responsibilities.

The Irish Heart Foundation are committed to supporting everyone to stay at home and stay safe so they have developed a number of activities and resources to keep the kids amused while also staying active.

Now more than ever we need to look after our health and wellbeing so to help you with this they have moved a lot of their resources online to support children, their parents and schools.

From fun exercises, nutrition to colouring pages and mindfulness,  they have created a range of free activities and opportunities for children to keep active while also supporting their well-being.

" We have created a range of free activities and opportunities for children to keep active which will also help to support their wellbeing." ~ Laura Hickey, Children and Young People Programme Manager, The Irish Heart Foundation

The Bizzy @ Home learning hub provides a range of lessons for parents and teachers to share with their children or use as part of online classes. These include worksheets for home schooling, wellbeing materials for children such as mindfulness lessons, a number of fun creative activities as well as ideas to help children to be more active during the day.

All of the content is linked to the school curriculum and children can also practice their numeracy and literacy skills at the same time as learning new ways to stay active. New activities will be added on a regular basis.

Commenting Laura Hickey, Children and Young People Programme Manager, Irish Heart Foundation said, “Our research has shown that schools were concerned about children’s health and wellbeing during lockdown. In particular, schools expressed concern that pupils didn’t have the same opportunities to be active and that children seemed were more anxious since returning to school in September. We know that children are experiencing negative effects on their wellbeing and that children from disadvantaged backgrounds are disproportionately affected.

Therefore,  we have created a range of free activities and opportunities for children to keep active which will also help to support their wellbeing.”
