As someone who has always been active, I love having the opportunity to share that with my nieces. From playing tag in the backyard or just running behind them as they’re learning to walk and run. It’s just so fun to be active while having fun.
It’s so important for children to learn the importance of being active and eating right from a young age, as that will stay with them their whole life. Making sure kids find the activities that they enjoy doing is all part of the fun. Getting them to try new things and eat new foods, helps to make them open to new opportunities.
From just having fun playing games, trying new sports, joining teams, there is so much that kids can learn from being active and so much that we can enjoy to participate in and watch as an Auntie.
We play catch in the backyard, kick the soccer ball around, take shots on the hockey net on the driveway, play Frisbee and so much more. There is really no end to what you try and do to be active with your nieces and nephews.
