Getting Your Kids Up And Moving!
For some children, it’s actually not that difficult to get them outside. They just need a little push and they’re out of the door. Take them on a walk around the neighborhood or a bike ride to the park. If possible, encourage them to walk or bike to school too. The more exercise, the better!
For other kids, the idea of walking or biking may not be enough to get them to put the tablet down. In those situations, it is important to have outside activities that will be fun for them. Be sure to have multiple activities that you can switch between to keep the fun going. Tag, kickball, and jumping rope are all fun games that never get old.
Make sure you’re setting an example by getting involved! Don’t just send them outside so that you can enjoy the peace and quiet of an empty house. Show them some of your favorite games from when you were a child. It’ll be the perfect bonding moment and you both will have fun doing it.
