Since many sports and activities have been cancelled this summer, you may find yourself looking for ways to keep the kids active this summer. Exercise plays a key role in both physical and mental health. Encourage your kids to get up off the couch and get the exercise they need with some kid-friendly activities that you and the kids will enjoy!

Do you have kids who love to dance? Well dancing happens to be a fantastic exercise! Put on some of their favourite music and encourage them to dance around the house. For some extra fun, get them to dress up like a popstar so they really bust out their best moves. Take a look at Just Dance’s Youtube channel for dance routines they can follow along to.  


Does your family love hunting for treasure? Well then geocaching could be perfect for you. Geocaching involves hunting around for hidden treasures while following a map. It’s a great way to get your family excited about an outdoor activity. Check out their website to find treasures near you!
