October 3rd is National #ChildHealthDay! One of the best ways to have healthy kids is to keep them moving. Kids often have a natural desire to move, fidget, run, play and jump. And that is good! Help your family move more each day and have fun with it. Think about what your family can do to be active together. Here are some ideas:
•Add physical activity to your daily routine. For example, walk or ride your bike to work or a friend’s house, walk the dog with your children, exercise while you watch TV, or park farther away from your destination.
•Set up a party or other social event with activities that get people moving, like dancing or having a jump rope contest.
•Play with your kids or ask them to join you for an exercise video or fitness game.
•Develop a set of activities for you and your family that are always available regardless of weather, such as indoor cycling, indoor swimming, stair climbing, rope skipping, mall walking, dancing, and active games that you can play indoors.
•Ask your kids for ideas. Get everyone involved by having your children choose physical activities for the family to try together.
•Come to Get Outdoors Nevada Day. Come join the fun on October 15th, 2016 at Lorenzi Park 9am-2pm. The annual celebration promotes trail use and outdoor recreation. It also includes informational exhibits, booths, basic bike maintenance checks and activities for all ages.
