In today’s technologically-driven society, getting kids away from the screens - televisions, tablets, and cellphones - is more challenging than ever. And if you want to get them up and active, think again. We’re seeing less than a quarter of adolescents ages 6 to 19 are achieving recommended amounts of physical activity on a daily basis. These staggering numbers continue to decline as children grow older because healthy habits, like regular physical activity, are not ingrained in their regular routine. If you want your children to grow up to be strong, healthy adults, development of those habits has to begin early. Let’s talk about some easy ways you can create a routine that will establish healthy habits.
It’s official, summer is here! That means it’s no-sleeve tees, sunny pool days, beach tans, and sweet lemonade for the next few months. But, at a certain point those days lounging at the pool can start to feel monotonous and you may start to feel limited by the outdoors summer activities that your family loves to stick to. You’ve got to keep the kids entertained, so how do you switch things up? An indoor playground in Boulder could be exactly what you need to jazz up your summer routine.
When you are raising toddlers, it can feel like the world is working against you. You want them to have the opportunity to learn, but you don’t want them having too much screen time; you want them to be independent, but also have healthy relationships with their peers; you want them to be active, but you also want them to be safe. All the things you want to provide for your toddler seem contradictory to the ways you can facilitate those opportunities, but it doesn’t have to feel that way! Indoor playgrounds are the perfect play places for toddlers to learn and experience all the things you want them to in a safe environment where you, as the parent, can be involved.
