You are a role model for your kids. They see you doing each and everything, and thus they know that it is the best way to do any task. So it is important for us to set a good example for your kids. If your kids watch you have an active lifestyle and a healthy diet, they will follow your example. They will also indulge in sports and will also tend to avoid fatty foods and junk food. You are the one who can indulge your kids in healthy activities by staying active yourself as well as help your kids to stay active. If you are thinking what kind of activities you can do with your children, we are going to tell you some in this article.
Have a Park Day
You do not need to spend any money. All your kids need is your time and company. You can go to any parks nearby and let your kids run and play. Take along a ball or badminton rackets for a fun activity. If you do not have any rackets or ball, you can just make them race against each other and have fun.
Visit a Trampoline Park
There are trampoline parks now for those who do not have exposure to trampoline due to money or other reasons. Children love to play and jump on the trampoline.
Take Up an Active Hobby
Taking up a hobby, that too which involves some outdoor play is sure going to give you and your kids the best family time. You can make a routine and fix a day for that specific hobby or activity. The activity can be of any kind like planting the trees, post-dinner walk and socializing in the neighborhood.
Hold Walking Competitions
Yes holding these kinds of competitions will give your kids the sense of competition and encouragement for outside activities. You can hold these competitions in the family or friends circle and make sure no one cheats. Do not forget to give special prizes to the winners.
Do Some Yoga
Yoga is indeed a very good practice. A few minutes before the daily hectic routine starts a few minutes of yoga will give you and your kids the right boost of energy you all need throughout the day.
Play Some Active Video Games
This generation is a video game generation. You can also join in with your kids and have a fun time. These days there are also video games that force you to get up and be active. By actively participating in the game you can be a friend to your kids rather than someone which always begs them to log off. The whole family can join and enjoy the fun time.
We are hoping that this will help you in making their routine and getting them off the video games as you also know how much they have played.
These activities are fun and will give you the special family time you long for.
