Praise children when they are active. Compliment their creativity and enthusiasm for movement.
Walking field trips!
Combine physical activity with adventure by taking walks of discovery. Go to Track Trails website for tips on having a successful family hike in the great outdoors - or a Backyard Adventure right outside your doorstep!
When playing tag games, design strategies for children to re-enter the game quickly by performing a specific movement. This will ensure continuous activity and reduce the level of competition.
Children like things that are familiar. Repeat favorite activities often, adding slight variations. Allow your kids to have a dance party with their favorite music!
Have fun family physical activity days!
Plan a fun-filled physical activity that the entire family can enjoy. Have family members take turns choosing the activities.
