Summertime is here! Help your family maintain a healthy exercise routine, even without the structure of school programs. Playworks, a national nonprofit that works with schools to revitalize recess, shares some tips for active family fun.
Make a Bucket List—Literally Give kids a bucket to fill with their ideas for summer activities. Pull from the bucket to plan family fun they will love.
Take Your Imaginations for a Run
Walking in a line, have the leader narrate a journey through “The Forest.” Duck under “branches,” climb “trees” and then sprint—BEARS!
Beat the Heat —When it is too hot to play outside, stay active indoors. Try Booty Ball: create a volleyball “net” with string. Then crab walk under it—this game works your core!
