Home School Gym Day

Are your home school children missing recess, gym class and time to interact with others their age?

It's hard for home school families to sometimes find that balance and can be expensive if you get into paid activities like sports programs etc.

Here's something we've done with a group of home school families in our area. We get together once a month for a gym day. If the weather is nice we meet at a local park and in the winter months we reserve a gym space for a few hours.

It's a great time for the kids to socialize with others their age, get exercise and have fun. Plus it's a chance to connect with other moms!

  1. We have been bad about getting out lately. But, in our area there are two park days each week. Once the weather warms up, we will start going. For some excercise, we use the wii! The wii fit and wii active, and soon wii dance gets you moving! And even the 6 year old loves it!
