Sometimes it can be difficult to tell if your kids are getting enough physical activity. So we say put the ball in their court with a printable activity log [PDF] that makes it easy for them to keep track. If your kids are very little, you can help them.
The suggested activities in the left column of the chart can be done in any combination and any length of time to get your children to the total of 60 to 90 minutes a day. Blank rows allow you to fill in your own activities. (Need more ideas? Visit our Activities section.)
Whenever your children are active, have them record their times in the appropriate row and column. At the end of the day and again at the end of the week, add up the totals to see how they are doing (they will be flexing their math muscles as well!).
Challenge your children to increase the variety of activities and time spent being active each week. And make sure you celebrate achievements with them.
Idea: Keep the current week’s log visible in a communal space such as the fridge and archive weekly logs in a binder so your children can keep track of their progress!
