Keeping Kids Active
Anyone who’s seen kids on a playground knows that most are naturally physically active and love to move around. But what might not be apparent is that climbing to the top of a slide or swinging from the monkey bars can help lead kids to a lifetime of being active.
As they get older, it can be a challenge for kids to get enough daily activity. This can be due to:
- increasing demands at school
- a feeling among some kids that they aren’t good at sports
- a lack of active role models
- busy working families
- spending too much time in front of screens
And even if kids have the time and the desire to be active, parents may not feel comfortable letting them freely roam the neighborhood as kids did generations ago. So their opportunities to be active might be limited.
Gravity is here to help! One of our missions is to help create healthy habits that your child will need for a lifetime of success and happiness. Don’t let being stuck inside stop you from being active.
We have created a holiday fitness game that will help your child stay active while creating warm family memories. It is called the Winter Wheel of Fitness! Learn how to make the wheel and play the game by watching the video:
