Healthy Kids Day is a national YMCA day to inspire parents and kids to stay physically and intellectually active all summer long.
The following are ideas for activities families can begin doing now and throughout summer to stay healthy:
Begin planning for summer activities. Check with the Y or the local parks and recreation for opportunities with day or resident camp, swimming, arts and crafts, or sports.
Start a book series and ready together each night as a family. Reading at night keeps the brain buzzing and young minds active.
Drink water. Have fun with flavor, give it some pizzazz with a slice of lemon, lime, orange, or even cucumber.
Take a walking staycation. Map out a new neighborhood or hiking trail in your area and get your family to explore on foot. It’s a great way to make Saturday a healthy, active start to the weekend.
Next time you get “I’m bored!” give your kids a jump rope! It’s an awesome way to have fun and keep moving. They can go solo, or get others in on the fun.
Start a “Words I Want to Know” notebook for the entire family. When there is an unfamiliar word, write it down, look it up, and add it to the family’s vocabulary. You can even keep track of these on the refrigerator.
