This holiday season, try adding a few new healthy activities to your annual traditions. Stay active with these simple ideas, which can be even more fun by involving the whole family:
- Take the family to a tree farm and cut down your own holiday tree. Everyone can take part, from choosing, cutting, carrying and decorating.
- Enjoy time with the littlest family members by collecting pine cones for a family art project.
- Spend a special moment with a loved one with a cozy walk in the snow and some hot chocolate to go.
- Spread some holiday cheer and bake a large batch of cookies for your favorite local charity.
Play together in this most wonderful (and active) time of the year.
