What is Fit Made Fun Day?
While a DJ spins KidzBop tunes, local children and their parents will enjoy healthy snacks as they gear up to become the new GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS holders for “Most children making sand angels on the beach,” “Most people hopping on one foot,” and “Most people doing a swim dance.” Also attending the event is the celebrity talent, soccer star Mia Hamm (yes, the Mia Hamm!), who will lead the competition. Children attending will also enjoy a few photo ops along with the musical entertainment.
How can I be involved if I am not a Santa Monica local?
I don't live in California, but doesn't this sound like a fun day? Why not make an effort to round up the kiddos and the dog, and take a hike, bike through the neighborhood together, walk downtown, or visit the playground to get all those wiggles out? There are a lot of ways to be actives as a family. I sent some interview questions to Mia Hamm, and she'll be sharing ideas for getting the whole family active, so stay tuned!
How is LeapFrog encouraging kids to be fit?
LeapFrog has just released the LeapBand, an activity tracker that comes with eight different customizable pets from LeapFrog's popular Pet Pals franchise – a cat, dog, dragon, monkey, panda, penguin, robot and unicorn – which can be customized by color and name.
With their very own virtual pal, children can play 10 preloaded active games and challenges with access to 40 additional free challenges. Basically, you move and earn points.
I'll have a review of the LeapBand on the blog at some point, but for now, I can say that it looks like a must-have for younger kiddos for this year's Christmas wish-list!
