Challenge your family to move more
The challenges below will get your family moving and will help make being physically active a part of everyday life. You can also check out our handy tips for more great ways to get started.
See how long your family can keep a ball or toy or balloon in the air, using your feet to pass it to each other. (You can also use a soccer ball.)
Make time this week to incorporate some strength building exercise. The playground is a good place to start. Use the monkey bars to lift yourself up, do lunges against a park bench or step-ups. Every little bit counts.
Challenge your family this week to do a 30 minute walk. Once you are comfortable with this, move to a brisk walk and if you are physically able to, progress to a jog. It does not have to be for a long time or distance, just take small steps to get started.
Teach your kids two new games this week that you might have played when you were a child. Skipping rope games, hide and seek, Mr. Wolf… the list goes on. It's a great way to share your childhood and connect with your kids.
