What are some ideas for keeping my daughter physically active?

There are many fun ways to be active together and ensure that your daughter gets the exercise that she needs--playing at the park, going for a bike ride, jumping rope, or kicking a ball around your backyard. If you cannot get outdoors, try making an obstacle course inside your home using pillows and toys or turn on some music and have a dance party! Making physical activity part of your child’s daily routine helps establish healthy patterns that will last into adulthood. Being active with your daughter is also a great way to spend quality time together, and keeps the whole family fit and healthy.
