5 Tips to Making Fitness fun for Kids

Hey Cuties,
I did The Color Run earlier this year and had a lot of fun. So much so I signed up to do it again; only this time I invited the family. The kids were really looking forward to it. We’ve participated in a lot of charity run/walks but nothing like this.

 Our next fun fitness activity for the kids is a trip to Ripley’s Believe It or Not!, Ripley’s is now located at the Baltimore Inner Harbor. They have over 15,000 square feet of the odd and weird world of Ripley’s Believe It or Not! where truth is stranger than fiction. You can see a real shrunken head, Hogwarts Castle made of matchsticks and much much more! Along with incredible artifacts and artwork from all around the world and over 100 “interactive” take a ride on our 4D Moving Theater and get lost in our Marvelous Mirror Maze. You can also take home your very own wax hand that you create. Ripley’s has been proudly freaking out families for over 90 years. Why just say it, See it!
Now will have them running around and having a good time.

      Thanks Ayana, I didn’t realize the kids would enjoy themselves so much. We do the Race for the Cure every year but apparently they like getting dirty. lol
