Think about what makes you special and unique.

Create a picture or poster which celebrates how special you are and recognises how you are different from others.

Include your appearance, your interests, your talents and your personality!



Make yourself an obstacle course inside or outside the house. Your obstacle course should involve an activity to make your heart beat faster, a jump, a crawl and a balance.

Some examples of possible activities could be:

  • Dribbling a ball
  • Jumping over cardboard hurdles
  • Leap the longest distance
  • Balance a book on your head while walking
  • 10 lifts of some tins of food or full plastic bottles

Feel free to make up your own activities. Time yourself to see whether you can beat your own record and then challenge someone in your household.
Can they complete your obstacle course faster than you?
