Spring Activity Ideas: 4 Ways to Have Fun Outside from Go OrganicallyMay 1, 2017
May is National Physical Fitness and Sports Month and to encourage kids to get moving, Go Organically has shared 4 ways to have fun with our kids outside, to inspire those of all ages to get active this spring. What is your favorite outside activity? Ours as a family is bike riding and jumping on the trampoline.
Warmer weather, flowers in bloom, and a chance to rediscover the joys of the great outdoors after several months of hibernation. May is a perfect time to renew your commitment to a healthy, active lifestyle while inspiring our kids to do the same. Studies show that kids need 60 minutes or more of physical activity each day. So lace up those sneakers, stretch out those limbs, and head outdoors to try one of these fun-filled family activity ideas from Go Organically Fruit Snacks.
1. Gear Up
Make sports equipment easily accessible so you'll be more likely to use it. Park bicycles near the front of your garage, or keep scooters in the mudroom to inspire impromptu usage. Stash a Frisbee or soccer ball in your car for pick-up games, or "catch up" on the day while playing a quick game of catch in the evenings. The idea is to integrate activity into your everyday life so it becomes a part of your routine.
2. Play Nature Bingo
Which family member has an eagle eye for spotting things like squirrels, ant hills or pine cones? To find out, head to your local park — or simply your own backyard — and play an active yet educational game of Nature Bingo. Print out a free online template and try to find as many items as you can, marking off each square as you go. Be sure to fuel your adventure with fun snacks for kids and adults, including trail mix, fruit, and our favorite grab & go treat, Go Organically Organic Fruit Snacks.
3. Embrace Old School Games
When we were kids, it was all about classic backyard games like Freeze Tag, Simon Says and Hide-and-Seek. Our favorite? Red Light/Green Light. One child acts as the "stoplight" and stands with his or her back to the crowd across the yard from the other kids. When the stoplight shouts "green light," the kids move forward and try to be the first to touch the stoplight. At any point, the stoplight may shout "red light!" and turn around. If any of the players are caught moving, they're out.
4. Take a Walk
It sounds so simple, but sometimes it's nice to get back to basics with regular family walks. Take the dog out together in the morning instead of making it a one-man job. Or work off dinner by hitting the pavement as a family for a sunset stroll. It's a great way to discover your surroundings, get to know your neighbors, and enjoy quality time as a family while burning off energy. We like to bring along reusable water bottles and easy-to-tote Go Organically kids organic snacks to keep everyone smiling.
