Let’s move and play every day, to help us be happy, healthy and have lots of fun!

Whilst you are at home, it is important for you and your family to keep moving as best you can. This is because moving and playing helps people to be happy, healthy and sleep better. We know it can be difficult to think of things to do whilst being at home all day – so we want to help!

Join Us: Move. Play with these fun, simple indoor activities to keep your children entertained. Keep having fun with #JUMPAtHome.

Help your community

The JU:MP research team have been speaking to parents to understand how they help their children play and move more at home, what makes it difficult for them, and what might help.

A survey with parents and children found that:

Parents and children feel they don’t have enough space inside their home or outside in their yard/garden. They also both said that children struggle to be motivated to be active at home because they are spending a lot of time doing things like watching TV, playing video games and using the internet.

Parents found it hard to help their children play at home as they were very busy with other things such as work and household chores.

Parents and children said that they would like more physical activity equipment, and fun ideas for how they can play and move more at home such as doing online physical activities with friends.

We’re now running focus groups with parents to find out what they think of JU:MP@Home, what they like and don’t like about it, how they have been using it, and what they think would make it better.

We would also like to speak to children (aged 5 to 14). If your child would like to attend a focus group with other children, please register using this form.
