Back to School with the Smiggle Pedometer

smiggle product 3

We live in an age surrounded by screens, iPads, laptops, televisions, video games and then there are phones. As we surround ourselves with technology (which don’t get me wrong I love ) our kids have become less active. Gone are the days where they would race home from school and they race for the bike or rollerblades to play non stop outside until dinner time. Master 6 is obsessed with his screens and getting him active has at time been a problem one that team at Smiggle have quickly turned into problem solved. What is this magical product you ask… It’s an pedometer for kids. It simply clips to their clothes or shoes and counts all their steps and for a competitive little guy like mine he has gone out his way to get moving just so he can see those steps go up, up, up. Not only has it been a great device for getting Mastet 6 active it also has been great for teaching his numbers. It’s so clever I took it for a little test spin myself and am now off to purchase a pretty pink for for me! 

Would you like to get your little person moving more in real like and less through Minecraft ? The lovely team at Smiggle are giving one lucky reader the chance to wine their own Active Pedometer valued at $19.95.

For a chance to simply share with me how you used to stay active after school ? The judges will choose their favourite answer and announce a winner on the 4th of February at 10pm

Good Luck x

    I was a ballet dancer. Averaged about 5 days a week doing the many styles of dance. It was my passion and I absolutely loved it. You don’t want to see me attempt the splits these days 😳

    I used to go to the local park and reserve. We kicked the ball around, had running races up and down the hills, attempted a few times to ride our bikes and climbed over the giant spider climbing frame. This wasn’t even when we were in primary, we used to do the same in high school 🙂

    I was lucky that my bestie had a trampoline, so spent most afternoons clowning on the trampoline to our favourite tape on her ghetto blaster … (Rick astley) lol, and I was lucky that the small town I’m from was really safe, so it was no problem for us to go to the beach or in town too, as long as home when street lights came on.

    We would ride our bikes a few blocks to an old paddock with a few horses and great climbing trees in it! We had a cubby up one of the trees and would decorate it with little trinkets and carve who we loved into the tree trunks… fun memories with my girlfriends!

    I use to love riding my bright pink barbie roller skates. My absolute favourite thing. I use to pretend I was a waitress and bring cold drinks to my brother that was relaxing on the grass ☺️☺️☺️☺️
