School’s out. The kids are happy, but parents everywhere are struggling to find ways to keep their children active. With the beginning of summer comes “I’m bored.” If you’re like most parents, your schedule doesn’t stop simply because school does. So what’s a mom or dad to do? Take a look at these five fun activities that will help your kids stay active in Amarillo this summer.
Splash Kingdom Waterpark
Who doesn't love a waterpark? The kids won't even know you're trying to get them to exercise – they just won't be able to help it! Running, sliding, jumping in the wave pool, and playing sand volleyball are some of the activities offered at Splash Kingdom Waterpark. It's fun exercise for the whole family.
MOMS Club of Amarillo
If you’re looking for a way to socialize and meet new people while your kids have fun this summer, consider joining a group like the MOMS Club of Amarillo. They hold play dates, outings, book clubs, and much more. Particularly for summer, they offer family fun nights at the park. This is great time for kids to be outdoors and get plenty of exercise while running around and playing on park equipment.
Bowling is a game the whole family can enjoy together – in fact, you can make a tradition of it. It's great for the competitive type, as well as for those who just want to enjoy an evening of socializing. But don't let the laid-back atmosphere fool you; bowling is also a decent workout. Your kids will love the neighborhood-friendly feel of Western Bowl, and you'll love the opportunity for exercise they provide.
Run! Jump! Fly!
This program is offered by the Don Harrington Discovery Center, and will be an event your kids talk about all summer. Straight out of the world of popular children's action-adventure stories, the exhibit inspires kids to get physical by allowing them to jump right into action-star training. Activities include Climbing Canyon, Kung-Fu Forest, Yoga Station, and Dance Club, to name a few. What's even better, as you move through the exhibit, you get ideas for simple ways to keep kids moving at home.
You’re probably thinking “Personal training? For kids?!” But in fact, it’s a great way to keep your kids healthy this summer. This time of year sometimes leads to couch-potato children – no school means no recess and no P.E. classes and the hot weather is something to be reckoned with. Unfortunately, in today’s society, children have access to far too many electronics that take away from their desire to go outside and just play. Enter personal training sessions tailored just for kids. It’s fun, it’s healthy, it’s important.
