Activity Purpose

Celebrate the kids' participation in fitClub by awarding certificates and challenging the kids to help others make healthy choices too!

Objectives

  •  Recognize the key concepts of fit:
    • fit has four parts: recharge, mood, food, and move.
    • Recharge and mood are influencers of your food and move choices throughout the day.
    • Food choices fuel your body and your brain.
    • Move is physical activity. Moving boosts your body and your brain!

Preparation

  • Talk Time: Kids sit and stretch or stand and march in place a safe distance apart.
  • Activity: Print a fitClub Certificate and a fitMarathon for each club member. Print names on certificates and have them ready to distribute.
  • Wrap Up: Award certificates and challenge kids to continue making fit choices with their families by doing a fitMarathon together.
