Micro Scooters are the number one premium scooter brand for tots, kids, teens and adults. Their Swiss designed and engineered scooters are made for moving. Made for exploring. Made to last.
Micro have worked with biomechanists BryteSpark to introduce Play for Life and Deliberate Play to the nation’s toddlers.
WHAT IS PLAY FOR LIFE?
Government advice stipulates children should be active for 180 minutes every day. There is very little advice or guidance on what active means. Nor suggestions for the activities children should do to be active.
Micro Scooters have worked with biomechanists BryteSpark to create games parents can play with the child.
The games are known as Deliberate Play. It is a technique widely adopted in the US, Canada and Australia. The theory is that when play becomes meaningful and deliberate it is a precursor to a lifetime of activity.
In Deliberate Play, adults engage in the child’s activity, support and guide. When a child is encouraged to find unique solutions to movement challenges, given goal specific tasks, creative themes or ‘family’ rules to traditional games, the play becomes more challenging, stimulating and rewarding.
The premise is that when play is deliberate, it will help a child to secure their early movement milestones for physical development with more confidence, meaning they are more likely to try new physical challenges and continue exercising and enjoy physical fitness into later life.
