Fit in Physical Activity


Studies show that physical activity gives kids' brains a boost. Nudge your little couch potatoes outdoors for some good old-fashioned backyard games after school and on the weekends. Talk with other parents in your neighborhood, who probably also want their kids to play outside more often, and organize some group games for all ages. Set a good example and squeeze in some exercise for yourself by trying these fun family fitness activities.
