Right alongside exercise, stretching is one of the most important aspects of maintaining good health, wellbeing and fitness. A regular muscle stretching routine improves muscle tone and suppleness. Take time to talk about benefits of stretching and go through a safe and gentle stretching routine together. If you are not sure on how to stretch safely, why not go to a stretch class together. Doing this activity:

1. helps your child understand the importance of stretching

2. show your child how to stretch safely

Health and Wellbeing is one of the 7 key life skills in the Inspired Children program.
