Tips for Families to Make a Play Date

Including more physical activity into your family’s day doesn’t have to require money or resources. It’s as simple as making a play date, with two key requirements – be active and have fun! Here are five things families can do to incorporate more active play in their day: 

  1. Schedule a Game Night: Play games with the kids that incorporate physical activity, such as Charades.
  2. Dance, Dance: Turn on your favorite party music and dance! Make this activity more fun with a dance contest.
  3. Go Riding: Find a new bike path or park for a fun afternoon outdoors; grab your helmets and go rollerblading or bike riding.   
  4. Channel Your Inner Youth: Remember playing hopscotch, jump rope, Simon Says or freeze tag as a kid? Teach your favorite childhood game to your kid(s) and play them together.
  5. Play Outside: Visit your neighborhood park or camp out in your backyard for some outdoor fun. Get everyone moving with fun sports like soccer, basketball or baseball.
