About Us

Active Fun In a Box has been created by The Active Hour team based in Lisburn, Northern Ireland. We're a small team of experts consisting of a PE teacher, children's physical activity specialist, health & wellbeing and education specialists and we're on a mission to inspire children across Northern Ireland and beyond with a lifelong love for being active and healthy. 

We're parents to a very active 4 year old and like most parents we just want our child to be happy and healthy.   

Growing up we were both involved with sport and physical activity from a young age and some of our fondest memories of childhood were playing fun games with family and friends out in the garden. All the time getting active, having fun and watching our friends play freely with smiles from ear to ear. 

During the past year we've been lucky enough to have the opportunity to spend more quality time with our 4 year old, playing, having fun, getting active together and creating our own memories. It's during lockdown however, that inspired us to set up Active Fun In a Box due to the number of parents contacting us to ask for advice on activities and game ideas they could play with their children to keep them active and entertained. 

Our Active Fun In a Box gives you everything you need to start creating your very own active memories in your own gardens whilst building children's confidence and inspiring a love again for being active and healthy.
