Embrace the power of science and remember: The CALPOL® range of products are here to help your child bounce back to their same old self!

1. Shout “sweets!”, then time how long it takes your child to run down the stairs.

2. Is your kid performing a roly-poly in the hallway for no apparent reason?

3. Stand outside their bedroom and play the ice cream chime loudly on your mobile phone.

5. Visit a local playground and insist on being the first to have a go on a swings.

6. Slow down in your family car as you approach a drive-thru. Is your child begging you to go?

9. Run ahead and jump in that enormous puddle.

10. Tell your child they can stay up past their bedtime tonight as a special treat.
