The flowers are blooming, clouds are melting away, and baseball season is in full swing. It’s official: spring has sprung!
A great way to exercise is together as a family. We’ve compiled a list of activities that you and the youngsters can do together while the sun is shining!
Spring is the most popular time for organized sports; with baseball, soccer, and so much more, these organized sports will encourage your children to be active and teach them the value of sportsmanship and teamwork.
You don’t necessarily have to leave the house in order to get off the couch. Simply take a few steps into your own backyard. Games like freeze tag, Red Rover, and hide and seek are always a hit. Or, ask your kids to contribute ideas to create a new game.
Walk it Out, Hike it Up:
Walking is a great form of exercise for the whole family, whether its a walk around the neighborhood or heading up to the mountains. To keep things exciting, pack a picnic or create a treasure hunt. Explore your imagination with your kids, make up a story or an adventure as you climb up a mountain or explore your cul-de-sac
At young age children start to learn through the power of imitation; what you do as their parent will fuel how they make choices in life. Showing them that being active is a vital part of staying healthy, is a great way to encourage healthy choices in their future. Spring is the perfect time to get outside and stay healthy and active as a family.
