Include children in household activities like dog-walking, car-washing, or lawn-mowing.
Help Your Child Be More Active
Focus on fun. You can do a lot of walking during trips to the zoo, park, or miniature-golf course.
Involve the whole family in activities like hiking, biking, dancing, basketball, or roller skating.
Be a role model for your children. If they see you being physically active and having fun, they are more likely to be active and stay active throughout their lives.
