Be Active, In Any Season!!!

As the weather starts to cool for most of us the time outside seems to dwindle for everyone. Let's be honest, it's a lot easier when you can just take the kids outside and let them play, versus having to make sure they have hats and coats on or sometimes winter boots. But just because it's more work, doesn't mean it's not worth it!

I think it's important for kids to stay active all year long. We have picnics outside when the weather is nice - spring through Fall. We take as many walks as we can, sometimes with the dog, sometimes without. Our son play soccer on the weekends. We go watch "Bob the builder's buddies" in action or walk to the playground. Kids don't usually care that it's cooler outside, the parents do. So instead of just watching them play, play with them!!! It'll get their heartrate up, and yours. :) In the Fall it's fun to rake up leaves and play in them, or throw them at one another. Of if you're lucky enough to live near a farm or orchard there are always fall events like hayrides, picking pumpkins and sometimes even a petting zoo. We are fortunate enough to live near several of these. My son loves going to see the animals in any kind of weather. And what about Winter when the snow is falling? Thanks to the movie Frozen, we will hear this every day: "Do you want to build a snowman?" Why not? Get out there and have fun with your kids all year round!
