It can be expensive to keep kids active all summer long with camps and recreational activities. Here is a fun way to get kids active around the house and it doesn’t cost $$! You can even change the obstacles and keep score all summer long.


Set up a relay or obstacle course around the house, yard, or apartment. Set a goal, designate a prize, and have fun!

Pick at least 5 different stations for the obstacle course.

Ideas of stations include:

1. Couch Sit and Jump: Sit slowly onto the couch and then jump up off your feet, land softly and repeat 20 times

2. Kitchen Sock Running Man: Wear slippery socks in the kitchen and while your in a push up position, slide your feet up, down and all around for 30 seconds.

3. Hallway or Outdoor shuttle run: pick a short distance and quickly sprint from one end to the other 10 times as fast as you can!

These are just a few ideas and we would love to hear others! Now GET READY, GET SET & GET FIT this summer!
