I heard the two words that I don’t want to hear again...
How can kids possibly say those words these days?
They have it all: toys, crafts, technology, you name it!
Our schedules are filled. Our brains are on information overload. Our houses are filled with stuff and our lifestyles are fast paced.
However, our bodies tend to be moving less and less, and everyone seems to be stressed. Research states that 10 minutes of exercise is the single best thing that you can do for your body, mind and mood.
We all know kids today are not as active as they should be. Kids rarely go off to “just play,” explore nature, and make up their own games. Playgrounds are empty. Parks and neighborhoods are too quiet. Bike paths and hiking trails are unused.
I know that you would agree: “letting kids simply play” today is unnerving for safety reasons.
They don’t have the opportunities that many of us had.
However, that should not stop them from exercising and moving their bodies for at least 60 minutes EVERYDAY!
Every child’s needs are different. Some need to be motivated, directed, inspired, and others just need to be pushed a little!
Kids are kids. They are not little adults. Daily exercise should be enjoyable. Activities that kids participate in should be full of variety. They should be simple yet challenging. Most importantly, they should be FUN. Kids need to like the activity and feel successful for taking part.
I have created an e-program titled
“Don’t Spend Your Time Sitting Around” Move Your Body Everyday!
Motivating Challenges to get your kids and family moving outside.
The digital e-program will be instantly delivered to your computer
Here is what is included:
80 pages filled with challenges, ideas & more
8 videos totaling over 30 minutes
easy to follow directions
The idea is to encourage your kids to become more active outside!
When I shared it with our seven year old; her response was, “WOW this is going to be FUN!”
*requires minimal equipment
*suggests creative yet simple activities
*encourages kids to use what they already have
*encourages kids to be responsible for their own activities
If a kid says, “I’m BORED”
Parents here is your response: “THERE’S NO WAY...GO PLAY!”
