Family PE Week October 2-6, 2023

“Family physical education” refers to physical activities families do together that promote health and fitness. Why? How about:

  1. Bonding: an opportunity for shared experiences and mutual support.
  2. Healthy Lifestyle: healthy habits from a young age
  3. Quality Time:  as a family
  4. Role Modeling: when children see parents value fitness, they are more likely to do the same
  5. Fun and Enjoyment: create happy memories.
  6. Health Benefits: like maintaining a healthy weight and improving mental well-being
  7. Social Interaction: fostering friendships and social skills
