I received free products in order to host the LeapFrog and CLIF Kid sponsored MommyParty. The opinions expressed here are my own.
We all know encouraging our children to participate in fitness and be active everyday is important. It is also important that they have fun doing it and a great way of doing that is to invite friends over who feel the same way to celebrate #FitMadeFun Day.
The Fit Made Fun Day was created to inspire kids everywhere to get up and be active and this past September 6th hundreds of children and their parents joined together in Santa Monica, California for multiple Guinness World Records. We were able to host our own mini Fit Made Fun Day at our home with some friends by playing some active games and enjoying some yummy snacks. Even though September 6th has passed, there is no reason why you cannot make any day a Fit Made Fun Day. Here’s how:
- An energetic group of kids and parents are always welcome!
- A Healthy Snack Like CLIFF Bars, yogurt and fruit
- Games that you can find on the LeapBand Party Planning Guide site
- An open space to move around in
- Any extra equipment you think you may need
What To Do:
The kiddos were starving, so we started out with a fun snack of fruit/yogurt parfaits topped with CLIF Kid Zbars. Each bar is made with 5g of protein, 70% of organic ingredients and contains no high fructose corn syrup. The kiddos loved to mix and match the different flavors and loved making them on their own.
LeapFrog has put together a LeapBand Party Planning Guide that was super helpful when it came to planning our party. An easy way is to use the LeapBand to get the kiddos moving, but with so many children running around and making noise we could not hear it. So, I was able to print off the CLIF Kid 60 Minutes of Motion Cards off of the site. This jump started our fun and definitely got everyone super excited.. We would flip a card and do the movement listed on the card…like downward dog.
We also let them create their own obstacle course and let each kiddo run it while everyone else cheered them on.
It was a great way to practice being a good sport and cheering on everyone else. Everyone, of course, had to end with a victory fist pump!
The kiddos AND the parents had a lot of fun. My kiddos have not quite got over the obstacle course idea, so we have had a new course every week in our front room!
We will definitely be getting together with friends to “Get Fit” again!
