        FOR STAFF

        We have created a short Change4Life quiz for handing out at activity sessions - a perfect rainy-day activity!

        Activity leaders may need to help the younger children complete the quiz. The quizzes can also be given to children to take home and complete with their families, perhaps collecting the answer sheet from activity leaders later in the week.
