My family loves the outdoors, especially in the summer. There are so many things to do and places to explore.
Unfortunately, is it easy for my kids to get sucked into spending hours playing video games or watching TV. That’s why I like to plan at least one activity per day that gets us all moving together.
I love it when my kids end up begging to stay outside playing – even after the sun goes down. It is important to encourage our children’s healthy habits like active play.
Sneak in Active Time at Home and on Vacation.
We visit a lot of local attractions like parks and recreational areas. You may be surprised at how many fun activities there are to do right in your own backyard.
Check your city and state’s website for local events and fun things to do with your family.
If you are going on a vacation, try to sneak in at least one family adventure activity. When I say “adventure,” I don’t mean everyone has to go skydiving. Your family’s adventure can be something as tame as hiking a trail.
Or, for a more get-your-heart-racing adventure activity, you can go whitewater rafting. The level of adventure is up to you and your family’s ability level.
