Children are growing, developing, and challenging what their bodies can do every day! The Summer Olympics provide a great example of how dedicated athletes come together with athletes from all over the world to celebrate their hard work and achievements. This can be a great time for children to think about their own physical fitness skills, and set goals to work towards fulfilling.
Being physically fit is a goal we have for life-long success. Through hands-on activities, children:
- Learn about the Olympics and the dedication it takes to be an Olympic athlete
- Use various tools to measure, weigh and time objects and activities
- Participate in their own Olympic Games complete with an Olympic Parade
Strengthening our body’s core, and developing stamina, balance and coordination will help children be physically fit for success in school and social interactions with friends. As children get older, it becomes more and more important for them to feel confident in their physical appearance and body fitness.
