Many parents and caregivers are wondering how to keep their kids active this summer.
Perhaps you want to limit the time your children spend on electronic devices, keep their brains active, encourage creativity and build family memories.
We suggest creating a healthy and active summer bucket list as a family.
Here are some fun, healthy and low-cost considerations for your family's summer bucket list.
Visit a farmer’s market and see if your family can make a full day’s healthy menu from only local products
Create a goal of how far to walk along Windsor’s Riverfront
Challenge your family to bike a lengthy portion of the Greenway
Walk all the way from the Visitor’s Centre at Point Pelee to the very tip of the Point
Be “junk food free” for an entire week
Visit a splash pad in a different town
Work together on a low-cost backyard project, such as building a campfire pit, a fairy garden or a pallet project
Spend an entire afternoon at a local beach
Create an outdoor movie screen and enjoy a show under the stars
Disconnect everyone from wifi and cellular data for a day and spend the time working on a family project or playing board games
A bucket list can create lasting family memories, and adding healthy challenges may just become healthy habits.
Good luck and enjoy!
