Hey Kids!

Hey Kids! It's almost SUMMER! What are you going to do to stay active and healthy? Here's a few ideas:

Get Outside and Play!

Play hopscotch, tag, or your favorite sport. Take advantage of the many local parks, pools and fields and invite your friends to play games. Make it a goal to stay active for at least an hour a day. You'll feel better, have more strength and have lots of fun!

Stay Hydrated!

While you're having fun playing games outside, remember to drink plenty of water. Water helps your body cool down and refreshes you after physical activity.

Freeze Tag

This game is a lot like regular tag, only when a person gets "tagged," they can no longer move. They can only move if another team member tags them back into action!

Plant a Garden!

Summer is a great time of year to enjoy your favorite fruits and vegetables. What better way to get your fruits and vegetables than to grow them in your backyard! Ask your parents if you can start a garden. Gardening is great exercise and harvesting your own fruits and vegetables is healthy!
