Active Family Fun – outdoors or inside

A tip from the YMCA Raising Healthy Kids Day by Day Calendar –

Go outside and play.

If there’s snow on the ground, play snow golf. Make holes in the snow with a cup. Then use a broom and ball to play golf.

If it’s too cold and your house is a mess, find a box for each family member. Label it with the family member’s name. Then set a timer for 10 minutes. Have everyone pick up clutter around the house and put it in the person’s box. After 10 minutes, give each person his or her box. Everyone can put his or her belongings away.
