Sports are a great way for families to be active together. Like we heard on a commercial a few years ago, families that play together stay together; and we believe that could be true. So what better way than with sports?
Tere are literally tons of different sports and recreational activities that can be done as a family. We want to give you some ideas in this post to make family play more fun. Plus, we don’t do posts like this very often, so we wanted to try something new to see how well it works out. If you all enjoy posts like these, let us know so we can make more.
- Grab some chalk and create a hopscotch course on the street or in your local park. Parents, you are never too old for some scotch.
- Make up your own games that provide points or rewards for more activity. This can be so much fun and give everyone a chance to add in their own touch of creativity, making for a special game that is unique to your family; one that your kids can pass on to theirs generation after generation.
- Have Races. Whether it’s walking fast with an egg on a spoon, jogging, running, biking, rollerblading, scootering, or heck even swimming, racing each other can be competitive, fun, and a lesson in teamwork for everyone and let’s face it – you are never too old to learn something new.
That’s all the fun ideas I have for you for now.
I hope however, that you did find these tips to be helpful and that they can help you and your family have more fun. If you have any of your own ideas to get everyone moving as a family, let me know! I would love to hear from you!
