Have FUN and be active each week by trying some of these activities...

By yourself

My Own Activity Pyramid

Hey, kids!

This is your own personal physical activity pyramid. List your physical activities for a week.

Or draw and color a picture of you doing your activity in the correct space.

Tip for parents!

You can encourage your children to be more active by making time for physical activities as a family.

Families that play together stay healthier together!
