Summer is the perfect season to get kids out and encourage fun physical activities. While it’s important to get exercise in all year, events like PBS Kids Get Up and Go! Day make it easy to inspire your kids to stay active. Get Up and Go! Day was a huge success this year, and School Specialty was lucky enough to be a part of the dancing, learning and heart-healthy excitement.
School Specialty Encourages Active Kids to Get Up and Go!
As a supporter of quality physical education for every child, School Specialty is happy to donate to organizations and events that work to make healthier lifestyles a reality. Get Up and Go! 2017 brought families and kids together to dance, play, and learn.
At the event, kids were able to take advantage of unique sport and educational activities like My Plate themed bean bag toss, catch and toss with velcro CatchPads, and a long, rainbow crawl tunnel. Other physical activities for the Get Up and Go! crowd included hopscotch, jump rope, basketball, and an obstacle course.
Healthy Activity Tools Donated to Appleton YMCA
After the event, all of the fun tools and physical education activities were donated to The YMCA to continue to give local students and kids a chance to let loose and become involved in healthy active play. Continue the movement and get your kids excited about physical activity and a healthy lifestyle with help from School Specialty this back to school season!
