On your marks...get set....go!

It is the London Marathon this weekend so why not get your kids out in the garden or a local park and have your own mini race.

Spend the morning decorating your own racing vests and then get on your racing shoes.



Simply cut a piece of lining paper or any large pieces of paper you have at home (maybe some left over wrapping paper) in a long rectangle with a hole in the middle to pop your head through.



Get your child to decorate the whole piece of paper, so that there is a design on the front and the back, not forgetting to include that lucky racing number.



 Place it over your little ones head and use sellotape or elastic to connect the front and back together along the two side seams.

You could also make your own medals for everyone taking part in your race. When you have decorated your giant medal, simply cut it out and attach a loop of ribbon or crepe paper on the back so that you can hang it around your neck.



Download your marathon medal here.

I thought this would be something…

I thought this would be something different to do with my granddaughter who is 19 months old, I was a bit concerned it wouldn’t hold her attention for the 45 minutes but was pleasantly surprised to say it was only in the last 10 minutes she became a bit distracted. We will definitely be going again.
