Welcome to our Daily GET ACTIVE Challenge! These suggestions are designed to give you ideas for getting the kids (and family) moving while having fun. Each day we will post an activity as our Daily Challenge. If it inspires you that is great! If you want to join in and do another activity off our BIG LIST that works too.
Stay tuned for great promotions (and some giveaways!)...participation in at least one day of the Challenge will be required!
Challenge #6: Traffic Lights- For all of your little car/truck lovers this is a game I can imagine playing in our house everyday. Make a list of all the actions a car does (age appropriate, older kids will have a longer list) and come up with a correlating action. For instance "green" = go/walk, "red" = stop/freeze, "speedbump" = jump...the list can go on and on. One person (Mom?) shouts out the actions to get everyone moving, stopping, etc. This game is from Teaching Ideas, click the link to see an incredible list of suggestions.
These suggestions come from a variety of people, websites, and local Hampton Roads resources. A big Thank You to everyone who gave ideas for this list including (but not limited to) local resources CHKD Healthy You For Life, Coalition for Infant & Child Health contributors Dr. Linda Mintle, Author of Raising Healthy Kids in an Unhealthy World (CINCH) and Tammy Underwood, Wellness Integration Specialist - School Health Initiative Program (SHIP) in the WJCC County Schools, Bon Secours of Hampton Roads Family Focus Program, Taylor Bend YMCA, Hampton Roads Mom, & Norfolk Stroller Strides.
