Water Balloon Challenge
There’s nothing like a good ole classic water balloon fight to get that blood pumping! Plus, it’s a great source of cardio. Whether it’s a team relay race using water balloons or an every-man-for-themselves water balloon fight in the yard, grab the garden hose and some colorful water balloons, and get ready for an exciting summer day!
Swimming is a great exercise that is easy on the joints and wonderful for a hot summer day! Whether it’s in the community pool or a day at the lake, try out some swimming exercises with the kiddos for a great family-friendly workout. Whether it’s seeing who can swim the most laps around the pool or seeing who that fastest is when swimming out to the dock and back, don’t be afraid to jump on in!
What better way to beat the heat than with some fresh, fun sprinklers? And we think that calls for a little friendly competition, too! See who can sprint across the yard, dodging the spray the fastest. Or grab a frisbee and play some slippery ultimate frisbee in the yard while the sprinklers are going strong.
Many people head out to the lake or beach on a hot summer day, and we’re not here to stop you!
