Activity of the Month: Backyard Olympics
The Olympics have a special place in our hearts for so many reasons. Most importantly, they showcase the best athletes in the world and inspire a whole generation of kids to dream big, set goals, and get moving. Now is a great time to encourage kids to create their own gymnastics routine complete with somersaults, jumps, and spins. Grab a soccer ball, baseball / softball, or basketball and head to the local park. Find a homemade baton and run like the wind! Even create your own torch relay through the neighborhood. The possibilities are endless.
Check out a few of our favorite #movers in action and tune in to watch Olympic and Paralympic athletes compete on the world stage!
