Keeping kids busy over the summer!

Now that summer is here and the kids are out of school, it's more important than ever for them to stay active and get the exercise their bodies need. While the summer break is a much-needed break from the school year, it's a time to fill with physical activity that can help kids't bodies and minds stay healthy.
Physical activity is important for children to become, and stay, healthy. Exercise helps children maintain healthy weight, build strong bones and muscles, as well as improve and maintain cardiovascular health. Getting enough physical activity also helps kids stay emotionally healthy, reduces levels of stress, and makes them overall happier. 
Exercise is also an important way to keep kids engaged during the summer months. Activity during summer can help children hone their physical skills and build confidence.
On their summer break, they can explore options they normally wouldn't have time for during the school year. Physical activities like swimming, hiking, biking, and playing outdoor games are all great ways to keep kids busy and build physical and mental strength. 
Additionally, research has shown that exercise in the summer helps children stay mentally sharp and energized for the upcoming school year. Exercise helps promote better concentration and greater focus, which can lead to improved academic performance. 
Therefore, it's vital that kids take advantage of this time to stay physically active and explore different types of physical activities. So we hope you are keeping the kids active and healthy these school holidays and look forward to seeing you back come term 1!
