They’ll be supporting sports days with their local schools and community groups, as well as providing children and their families with some great ideas for fun games they can get involved with at home.

We’d love for you to get active with Asda too, so we’ve uploaded four special activities. Why not download them and have a go yourself?

There’s the warm up breakfast bonanza, energy tag, snack swaps and hydration situation.

Show us how you get on! We’d love to hear what you think of our fun activities – post on Twitter and Facebook using the hashtag #asdaactive or tweet @AsdaCommunity with your action shots!
