Meet the Be Active Kid Clubhouse Team

Blue

Hi, I'm Blue, the Caring Cub, but my friends call me Blue.  I'm the leader of the Be Active Kids Club.  We meet every afternoon in the park to eat healthy foods and play fun games.

My favorite snack is yogurt.  It is delicious with mixed fruit or by itself.

 

Dart

Hi, I'm Dart! I love to run! I also have a boombox that I carry around with me, so the rest of the Be Active Kids and I can dance.

My favorite snack is graham crackers, and nothing tastes better with graham crackers than low-fat milk! This snack gives me lots of energy for running and dancing.

 

Glide

Hi, I'm Glide! You may have already guessed that I love to fly. You can flap your arms and pretend to fly like I do! I also love to play with my ball. I carry it around with me in my backpack.

My favorite foods are vegetables, like carrots and broccoli. I bring them to my friends from my garden at home, or I get them when I shop at the grocery store with my mom.

 

Leap

Hi, I'm Leap! My favorite activity is hopping up and down on both feet. Sometimes I lead the other Be Active Kids in a game of follow-the-leader! I run and skip, also, but hopping is what I like the very best.

My favorite snack is a baked chicken leg. Dart thinks they look sort of funny, but I think they taste great!

 

Swing

Hi, I'm Swng!  I love to climb and balance on things.  It's fun to try to balance on a log and walk across it!

My favorite snack is fruit, like bananas and oranges!

Testimonials

  • Preservice Teachers Learn to Use Be Active Kids in Limited Spaces

    I really enjoyed our class meeting. It was interesting to discover that you can do just about anything with children in the classroom where there may not be much space to encourage them to be active.  A change that I will make in my own life is to be more active, as well as my daughter. I will share this information with my friends that have children such as yoga animals, or Simon Says.

  • Early Childhood Physical Activity Institute

    Thank you for inviting me to be part of this year’s Institute. I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed the experience. You’re doing amazing work and I hope I’ll be able to continue contributing to it a bunch in the future.

  • Plenty of Resources That I Can Use and Share

    This class was informative, and I look forward to being physically active with young children. On Friday, I volunteered at a Parents Night Out through my daughter's school. When I got there the kids were watching a movie. I got them up to play Simon Says and Red Light Green Light, however, after that I was stuck on what to do. I wish I had the knowledge I gained from this class, to have made it more exciting.

    I enjoyed your Land and Lake Activity.

  • Be Active Kids Trainers Rock!

    I loved the training.  I would have loved it more if I had the other teachers from my center there also.  I am really looking forward to taking my kit to work and sharing it with my staff.  I liked Brittney, she reminded me of myself as far as being very active and motivated.  When I am at work with my little ones we stay busy all day.  I feel like singing my instructions and dancing my actions helps them to focus better on what I need for them to do.  Britney was great and I learned a lot from her. I am always trying to find new little ways to get the kids moving.

  • ECPAI

    The Early Childhood Physical Activity Institute was just wonderful!  Thank you again for including me in such an important effort to create and sustain leaders in EC physical activity. I would love to return to NC anytime that you think I can help. I enjoyed meeting the folks who work with you and hearing about all of the great things that are planned.

  • Be Active Kids has Much to Offer

    Congratulations to you and everyone who has been promoting PA for young
    children in NC. You have much to be proud of here. Be Active Kids is an excellent source of ideas for promoting active play in unstructured settings. The Be Active Kids website also has resources on promoting unstructured active play. I encourage folks to review these resources.
