Think outside of the box to get active

Since we can no longer simply send the children out to play or invite over friends, it’s time to get creative! Here are a few ideas that I hope will transform your boring household and keep children active during the quarantine.

Backyard or Indoor Obstacle Course — Grab jump ropes, pool noodles, couch cushions — whatever you’ve got — and create an obstacle course in or outside.

Simon Says Fitness — “Simon Says do five jumping jacks.” “Simon says hop in place while rubbing your stomach.” 

Laser Maze — If you can find a hallway, yarn or twine, and masking tape, you can create a really cool laser maze.

Hopscotch — Got chalk and a driveway or sidewalk? Try good old-fashioned hopscotch!

We’re all in this together

We’re all in the same boat — just trying to keep our families safe and happy during a difficult time.
