A lot of effort can go into a relaxing afternoon in the garden. Swinging in a hammock is very pleasant, and when you're the youngest person present, and expected to do the pushing, you might as well climb aboard too. For something even more energetic, try to master a four-wheel child's bike, known as a 'push-me-pull-you'. Even if you don't make much forward progress, everyone has a good laugh.
