Join Your Kids and Get Active!

Regular, weight-bearing activity not only helps kids build strong bones, but it also helps you maintain strong bones, too. So revisit your childhood and join your kids for some “weight-bearing fun and games.” Play:

  • Freeze Tag
  • Leap Frog
  • Jump Rope
  • Hopscotch
  • Simon Says
  • Football Toss

 

Forget how to play? Just ask your kids. They’ll know! Or let Blitz the Seahawk take the lead and exercise with these Bone-Builder Fitness Cards!

Kitchen Tips for Taking Care of the Planet

Follow these tips to reduce, reuse and recycle and save energy!

  1. Purchase products that use recycled packaging and recycle any plastic, carton, or glass containers.
  2. Keep sandwiches in reusable containers instead of sandwich bags or sandwich wrap.
  3. Cook in one pot. You wash fewer dishes and use less energy.
  4. Cook large amounts and freeze the extra. Cooking and only reheating later saves energy and time!
  5. Cook once and eat as a family. It saves energy, and kids reap the benefits of family meals, including better nutrition.
  6. Plan meals ahead of time. It saves last-minute trips to the grocery store or the scramble to get take-out.
