Because I couldn’t decide, I have two fun activities to share today!

Park Fun:

When was the last time you went to the park and actually played with your kids? And I don’t mean just pushing them on the swings? Chase them around (my husband loves to be a monster!), go down the slides as a train, race them across the monkey bars, see who can swing the highest. It’s a lot of fun, and you’ll get a work-out at the same time!!

Sprinkler Freeze Dance:

I have the luxury of being married to a man who taught PE to elementary-aged children for a couple of years. He has some really fun ideas!! This activity is one of his.

Turn on the sprinkler and let your kids dance in the water. You can turn on music, if you want, or just let them dance to the sounds of your neighborhood. Then, stop the sprinkler; we just kink our hose, but if you don’t want to do that to your hose, you can always turn it off. When the water is off, they freeze! When the water comes back on, they dance again! It’s fun to let your kids have a turn to stop the water, too. Simple, but fun!

 

**Do you get the title? It was my husband’s suggestion.
