SIMCOE MUSKOKA – All beached out? Looking for some great ways to keep the family busy and active during the last weeks of summer?
SIMCOE MUSKOKA – All beached out? Looking for some great ways to keep the family busy and active during the last weeks of summer?


Check out some of the great ideas the primary students at a local health-based school event in June shared with the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit:

  • Play outside
  • Go fishing
  • Throw basketball hoops
  • Go for a walk on a trail you haven’t tried
  • Ride bicycles to the park
  • Have a talent show
  • Kick some soccer balls
  • Swing on the monkey bars
  • Dance
  • Play baseball
  • Treat your dog to a long walk
  • Play hide and seek
  • Jump rope

If you have already maxed out these activities, have a family contest to see who can come up with the most or best ideas for active outdoor activities that you haven’t done yet this summer. And if you’re looking for more activities, ParticipACTION has some great ideas for outdoor family play at: https://www.participaction.com/en-ca/peptalk/family-content/seven-ideas-for-unstructured-outdoor-family-play. There is still so much to do before school starts again, so enjoy the last couple of weeks outdoors!

For more information about physical activity see www.simcoemuskokahealth.org, or call Health Connection at 705-721-7520 (1-877-721-7520) Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
