Active Video Games are not Enough

Recently there has been a rising in “active” video games. While I think this is great and is a way to get some kids off the couch/chair and moving around, it is beginning to be thought this really isn’t enough for our children. This article (http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/kelly-murumets/active-video-games-exercise_b_2338119.html ) highlights another way to get your kids out and moving over the break. I will say that while these ‘exergames’ are good to get them up and about it does not help them reach their Daily Physical Activity goal(which is around 60 minutes of moderate/vigerous activity daily).

ParticipACTION is a website that gives a few ides of what you can do over the break (or even all the way up to when the weather is better) to keep active and have fun!
