Five Fun Active Ways To Spend Time With Family

5. No sitting still during commercials: Make a playful house rule to keep active even when you’re taking some time out to watch TV. During the commercials get the family up and moving around by running up and down the stairs, playing games or anything that gets you off the couch!

Keeping the family active and healthy is simple and fun once you get started! For more fun ways to spend time with the family, check out our Family Fun Wednesday features!

    Round up the family and go for a walk
    Round up the family and
    Take them outside
    And walk around the block
    (Hup 2, 3, 4)

    Walking for up to an hour
    Is really okay
    You get to know your family more
    So, round up the family and go
    For a walk and “TALK! TALK!

    Round up your family and
    Ride a bike
    Go for a SPIN! SPIN! SPIN

    (Everybody Sing!)

    Round up the family and
    Ride a bike
    Do you still have that Schwin?
    Cycling is fun and it’s
    Great exercise
    Good role modeling for
    Parents too!
    So, round up the family
    And Ride a bike
    A fun family thing to do!!

    I dream of one day “kite flying” with our children and playing the song “Lts Go Fly a Kite” from that classic beloved Disney Movie, “Mary Poppins”.

    I remember when I was abut 8 or 9 and my dad took me and my brother (Imants) to the Beaches area in Toronto (have been back there reflecting a while back) and kite flying with him. It was a bat shaped kite with an orange face and I remeber flying the thing over a water power building (still there). The Beaches area is right by Lake Ontario (HELLO BUFFALO AND ERIE COUNTY!).

    Anyway, to make a long story even longer, I remember having lost that kite somewhere over that building somehow (flew awa); to this day I still can’t find the damn thing (HA! HA!)

    I remember that time with my dad fondly and it was really special when I went back there a while ago to reflect (that’s love I think!)
