Families and Kids Get Active at Home

More Kentucky families are getting active together by walking, biking, gardening — even jumping rope! Other ideas include:

  • Chores like raking leaves, which burn calories and are more fun when everyone works together.
  • Pressed for time? Turn up the music during kitchen clean up for an instant dance party.
  • Teach your kids old-fashioned games, like hopscotch or foursquare. Enjoy bonding and the physical activity.

Kentucky Parents Take the Lead

“Be active with your kids ... just going outside and moving is what kids need and it’s helpful and invigorating for parents as well.” Dr. Aaron Beighle, Associate Professor of Kinesiology and Health Promotion, University of Kentucky, Lexington, Ky.

A Mileage Club® at Home

“It’s not just about doing a mile. We get out and we giggle and we laugh and the time together is just irreplaceable … it’s just an enjoyable time for the family.” Sharon Hornston, Parent, Somerset, Ky.
