05/24/17 Spring outdoor activity ideas from Go Organically® Organic Fruit Snacks

 

Hard to believe that we are already into May and almost half way through the year. Spring is in full swing with warmer weather, plants are in bloom, and a great time to get outdoors and get active. May is National Physical Fitness and Sports Month—which makes it the perfect time to renew your commitment to a healthy, active lifestyle while inspiring your kids to do the same.

Spring outdoor activity ideas from Go Organically® Organic Fruit Snacks

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® Organic Fruit Snacks.

Gear Up

Make sports equipment easily accessible so you’ll be more likely to use it. Dust off that sports equipment, air up those tires on the bikes, maybe park them closer to the door of the garage so the kids can hop on for a quick spin around the block. The idea is to integrate activity into your everyday life so it becomes a part of your routine.

Play Nature Bingo

Which family member has an eagle eye for spotting things like squirrels, ant hills or pine cones? We have a Cub Scout and a Boy Scout in our midst, so they are always keen to tell us about local wildlife, native plants and or they are curious about all the great plants that are in bloom right here in Arizona. 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.

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.

Take a Walk

It sounds so simple, but sometimes it’s nice to get back to basics with regular family walks. My daughter loves to take our beloved rescue dog for a stroll around the block and before I know it, the boys want to join her because everyone wants a turn to walk the dog. Who knew something so simple could be so much fun for them. We also enjoy just a leisurely stroll as a family to talk about anything we may not normally cover at the dinner table or after school, this allows us to really reconnect as a family. As always, we take bottles of water to stay hydrated.

How do you get up and go with your family? What are some ways you stay active? Be sure to share for your chance at some Go Organically Organic Fruit Snacks.

    Fishing is my favorite activity. We used to go every summer when the kids were smaller. My husband’s back is not so good now, so he can only go out on pontoons or big charter boats. So, I dream of having a pontoon. Hey, a girl can dream, can’t she? ha,ha
