How Do You Get Your Kids Active?
Our readers shared with us (on Facebook) how they get their children active without breaking the bank.
My son and I have a “dance” party everyday. We turn on some oldies or children’s tunes and we dance away. He never tires of it, it’s fun, it’s free and gets us both off the couch. Shake that booty is his fav!
Out and About in the park playing the game “Who Can Find…”. Who can find a flower and then go onto the next thing etc.Have running races; just simple everyday things and reward with a choice of DVD when you all get home tired/dirty but happy having had lots of fun.
My daughter does Special Olympics and also is in the TOPSoccer Program in our area. Those are all free. With special olympics, regional and state events would require travel, but you do not have to have them compete at that level. TopSoccer is free and open for all ages…here it runs in the Spring for 6 weeks. If you have Little League you could see if they have a Challenger League.
