Here at Move More we are all about physical activity. Apart from the obvious benefits of developing motor skills, staying active and boosting mental health; it can also be quite a cost effective gift!

When deciding on a toy its best to consider whether it …

  • Encourage outdoor play?
  • Require movement?
  • Develop coordination?
  • Offer sensory input?
  • Inspire creativity and imagination?

If you are stuck for some last minute Christmas gift ideas to keep your little ones active and busy then why not have a look through some of these ideas that we have put together below. What’s even better is that all of them can be found for roughly £25 or under online so there should be something here to suit all budgets, interests and activity levels.

P.S. Gifting aside, the best thing we can give our young people is our time so don’t worry too much about gifts! Make memories by going out for family walks, bike rides, nature trails, country parks, swimming, trampolining, ice skating, geocaching – the list is endless! These are all great family activities which are not only good for physical health but also mental health.
