Wellbeing Week-Let’s get active!

Good morning St. Vincent’s! I hope you have had an enjoyable week 🙂 

Today, I am encouraging you to get outside and get active! 

Being active is one of the five ways to wellbeing: 

  • Give
  • Be Active
  • Keep Learning
  • Connect
  • Take Notice

Spending time outside makes us happier and lifts our moods-If I feel a little bit sad, I always try and get outside (even if its raining!) as I know it’ll make me smile 🙂 

 

Today, you have two challenges to choose from: 

 

  1. You could complete the St. Vincent’s Scavenger Hunt. Head outside on a walk with an adult and see how many things you can find! You will need a pencil and you can either print off the St. Vincent’s Scavenger Hunt sheet or write it out. Click here to find it! 

  1. Or you could create some ‘Nature Art’! Head out on a walk and take with you a bag, box or bucket (preferably with a handle!) and make sure you wrap up warm. What can you find? Look for interesting leaves, sticks and stones. Bring them back to your house and see what you can create. Look at the images below for some inspiration! 

Miranda, from Paddington Rec, offers some more ideas in the video above! 

Have a lovely day and I would love to hear how you get on in the comments below 🙂
