Go for a walk after dinner
After sharing your meal, go for a family walk outdoors to explore the neighborhood. For even more fun, take the family pet along. You can even grab your bikes and spend an hour riding outdoors before turning in for the night. This gives the family quality time together minus the screen time.
Get the whole family involved with yard work
Whether it’s mowing the lawn, raking leaves, shoveling snow, or pulling weeds. Yard work goes more quickly when you get everyone involved. Plus, work turns into play when you jump into a pile of leaves or build a snowman.
Create backyard game time
Grab some hula hoops, a jump rope, skates, Frisbee®, soccer ball and more to take fun and games outdoors. Have a friendly competition with family (and friends) or splash around with water games. The sun, fresh air and fun will motivate everyone to get moving and burn calories.
Yoga, Pilates, Tai Chi and more exercises can be done on a mat outdoors to support the physical and mental health of the entire family. Lead by example by inviting your family to participate in family workouts.
