Family Fun Day: 5 Fun Ways to Stay Active as a Family!

My family and I had a blast at Family Fun Day this past Saturday at the Reformation Lutheran Church!

I set-up a table, where I handed out "5 Fun Ways to Stay Active as a Family" flyers and other Creation Health materials, while my boys ran around playing games and eating all kinds of treats! It was a great turnout for this 1st annual event!

For those who were unable to attend, here are 5 fun/active ways to spend time together with your family...

1. Play a game of Backyard Football 
-or another game (tag, Frisbee, baseball, etc)---the possibilities are endless, but the point is to get outside and have fun together as a family!

2. Go on a bike ride! 
-or take a nature hike---anything that allows you to enjoy God's creation!

3. Participate in a local 5K for Charity! 
-or any community race (walk, run, bike ride, etc) that gives you the opportunity to give back while you get fit!

4. Clean the house! 
-or yard, garage, etc---turn the music on and burn some calories while you work!

5. Take a camping trip!
-or a trip to the lake---simply get away from the chaos of life for a day or two, enjoying each other's company in a new setting!

What about you? Do you have any ideas of ways that families can stay active together? Feel free to leave a comment!

And if you have an upcoming event, let us know how we can be apart of it!
