Get Moving Anywhere, Anytime!
Get children moving...anytime, anywhere!
Kids don’t need a big outdoor space to move their bodies!
On the Go
Instead of walking to the car, encourage kids to jump like frogs or hop like bunnies. Even when buckled into a car seat, kids can stretch: reach up high, twist from side to side to look out both windows, and reach down low to tickle their toes!
In Front of the Television
Turn commercial breaks into quick dance parties—get up and dance until the commercial is over!
In the Bedroom
Sometimes kids need to “shake out some energy” before getting into bed. Ask children to hop to your directions—hop on their left foot and then their right, from one side of the room to another or in place, in a circle or a line, and so on.
Connecting & Communicating
Communication and connection with families is key to building a strong, effective healthy team.

Regular check-ups can be a fun and informative experience for the whole healthy team, kids included!
