DIY: Make your own Active Play Kit
An active life is a healthy life for your whole family. Play is not only a great family fun activity, but it also helps children prepare to learn, build social skills, develop physical skills, build problem solving skills, allows them to be creative, and improves their overall health and well-being. When parents are active, their children are learning to be active for life. Active Grand challenges you and your family to include more ways you can be physically active with our sample 30 Ways to Play. It does not take much equipment to make your own Active Play Kit, to actively play and have fun!
