At Play

No matter where you live, it’s likely that outdoor and indoor activities abound in your community. This section offers some ideas on creating active family outings.

For parents, activities can be a stress-breaker from the never-ending duties at work and home. For your child, it can be an introduction to a new sport, undiscovered things to do in town, or exploration of new classes in your community.

The key is to keep moving. Find something engaging that the whole family can enjoy. Schedule your outings, but also make impromptu decisions to just get off the couch and go. Activity changes lives! We hope you find some inspirational topics here. If you have a great idea for active family fun, please share it with us.
