YOU DID IT! 

ACTIVITY 1

Ping pong playlist

You'll need 3 people for this game - 2 players, and 1 DJ!😎 Get the DJ to put on some tunes, and then start your ping pong rally. Without watching the game, the DJ will randomly pause the music at some point, and whoever has the ball on their side when the music stops...loses that round. Play up to 10 points and then rotate positions so the DJ can get in on the ping pong, and one of the players can take control of the music. 🎵

Ping pong originated in England in the 1880s. It was created as an adaptation of lawn tennis, so that players could enjoy the game when it was too cold to play outside. Hmmm, sound familiar?

ACTIVITY 2

Walk the walk!

Get bundled up for this outdoors activity. Head out for a walk together and take turns calling out different "walking styles" that everyone has to do for at least 10 steps. Get creative and have some fun with it. Need a few ideas to get started? How about "Speed walk!"..."Backwards walk!"..."Skipping walk!"..."Boogie walk!" (that's right, we said CREATIVE 😉). You're sure to have a good time, and who knows how long you'll end up walking?!

Did you know?...

Racewalking became an Olympic track and field sport in 1904. The races went up to distances of 20 km and 50 km! While it doesn't always get the same recognition as other sports, racewalking takes some serious technique and is an excellent full-body workout.

Mid-challenge checklist

Don't forget these essential elements of every activity...

1

Determination: Set a goal, and stick to it. One activity per day? You've got this!


Hydration: Remember to hydrate before and after each activity. Keep a water bottle close by at all times.                                         

A smile: Everything is more fun when you're smiling. Remember not to take these games too seriously.

ACTIVITY 3

Introduce your kids to a few basic yoga poses like "tree pose", "chair pose" and "triangle pose". See who can hold each pose the longest without losing their balance. Next, the ultimate challenge...try to get everyone to participate a 5-minute SILENT meditation session (we know, good luck!). Even if you don't hit that 5-minute mark, you'll all benefit from a little quiet time before getting on with the rest of your day/challenges. 😉

Originally, basketball was played with a soccer ball. The idea came from James Naismith, the Canadian who invented basketball in 1891! So, if you have a soccer ball at home, why not try out this "vintage" version of basketball as well?

ACTIVITY 6

To the costume drawer! Try out archery while dressed up as a famous character. Who will you be: Hawkeye from the Avengers, Katniss from the Hunger Games, Merida from Brave, or Legolas from Lord of the Rings? To really get in the zone, play the movie score in the background.

ACTIVITY 7

Soccercircuit

Set up a circuit of 3-5 stations and set a one-minute timer on your phone. See how many times you can complete each move before the timer goes off. Here are a few station ideas to get started:

- Zig-zag dribble: Set up a row of small household items and dribble a soft ball through them in a zig-zag motion. When you reach the end, turn around and head back to the start.

- Knees and toes: Bounce a soft ball off of your knees, feet and ankles...anything but your hands! Count how many times you manage to touch the ball before it hits the ground.

- The A-B hop: Set a Point A and B (EX: kitchen counter to front door), and hop on one foot from A to B; then hop back on the other foot. See how many times you can go between A and B in one minute.

Circuit training is a popular workout style because it's 100% customizable, doesn't require much equipment and...it's fun! Our brains can zone out when we do one repetitive action, so circuit training keeps things interesting by incorporating short bursts of activity that change from station to station. Not only great for holding kids' attention - circuit training is also an excellent option for adults looking to stay motivated.

Enjoy playing together!
