It’s Family Fun Month, and in honor of it, we’re helping you make exercise fun so you can get moving with your whole family.
Go for pre- or post-dinner walks as a family. They’ll help with your digestion, and walks are the perfect time to explore your neighborhood.
Crank a record or a playlist, move the furniture, and have a dance party. Music can help cognitive development. You’ll get moving, and you can hand down your favorites.
Make a game out of household chores to improve imagination and get active. Put on capes and have your kids save their toys from the slimy pit of the rug by putting them away.
Have a weekly sports night. Go to your kid’s baseball game, play tag or catch in the backyard, or make or buy an exercise deck of cards.
Walk or run for charity. Teach your kids the value of helping others and about good causes, and meet people while working out.
Put kids to work in the yard. Tell them they can only jump in the leaf pile if they help rake and bag them too.
Garden together! Kids already love playing in the dirt, so have them help you plant a garden and learn about healthy fruits and veggies.
