Making fitness a game or friendly competition can create a love for it from a young age. Start with this fun Easter Egg Fitness Hunt with your kids this year!
Setting Up The Fitness Hunt
- Print clues and cut into individual pieces.
- Place clues inside plastic eggs.
- Place eggs in their specific location to be found by excited children.
- Before starting the hunt, explain to the kids that they need do the exercise from each clue before they move onto the next location.
Ideas for the Treasure
There is so much candy around holidays, which is fun for kids and can be part of holiday traditions and memories. This is definitely true for Easter. Instead of making your fitness hunt about a treat they can eat at the end, here are some fun non-food fitness related ideas for the treasure:
- Water bottle
- Jump rope
- Hula Hoop
- Inflatable Punching Bag
- Skip Ball
- Balance Ball
- Over the door basketball hoop
- Inflatable bowling set
- Soccer net
- Nerf football
Set a Fitness Example
This can be a fun activity that the entire family can be involved in – including parents! Kids watch closely what their parents do, and if you exercise with them it tells your kids that you enjoy fitness and that it is an important part of your life. Get your heart rate up and get excited about each of the exercises.
