This week is National Recess Week and schools all over America are celebrating it with special recess activities.
But what is behind this recognition week. It's about the importance of getting kids active. It's about getting kids to playground to play, run around, have fun.
But we don't have to stop with the School celebration. How about taking your kids to the playground this weekend and have a picnic to celebrate the fun of being active.
When I look back on my childhood, it is some of the simple activities we did as a family that I remember most. Have fun with your kids and celebrate the joy of active play.
Bonus: keeping up with the kids is great exercise for us adults!!
