All Ages Welcome! – Top 5 Family Sports Regardless of Age!


Active-Family-1-e1344356304521Staying active is integral to maintaining a healthy lifestyle!

There’s no better way to instil the need for activity then playing sports with your kids as a family!

And despite the popular notion, there is no age limit!

Here are 5 family sports that you can play with your kids, no matter their age, from strollers to scooters to sports cars.

1) Swimming

This is a no brainer! Toddlers in pools are an age old practice, and it helps promote family activity, fun and fitness. According to multiple studies, swimming is the best workout anyone can get. There is limited stress on muscles, and more games to play than you can count. Not overlooking the fact that learning how to swim at a young age can one day save lives.

2) Biking

Grab your bikes and hit a trail! Biking as a family is an overall great experience for your kids and you. With the Sun out, sunscreen and water are integral! Throw a seat on the back of your bike for your 6 month old and even if they start napping halfway through the ride, the family is still all together! Wee Urban’s President Holly Maclean just participated in the Rouge Valley 10K with her family, and it was an amazing experience that she recommends for all!

3) Skating

Get a stroller with some blades on it, or hey, the wheels might work just fine on ice. There’s ways to have family fun in the winter too! Go Skating! Especially if you’re from the great white north, skating is basically a must in the winter. There’s always public skating happening during the year, it’s free and it’s great family fun! So check with your local township for schedules! Well, in a couple months…

4) Rollerblading

It’s skating… but in the summer. Rollerblading is great for families as well and it’s cost effective as you can find good rollerblades for cheap. Put baby in a stroller, strap some helmets, gloves, knees and elbow pads on the kids and get out on a trail or find an indoor rink somewhere. These are rare, but they are out there.

5) Tobogganing

Another winter go-to. You can get family sleds that fit 4 people, hold on tight to the little one and go down a small hill. A little bit more risky, but totally worth it with the fun that they will have. Tobogganing is winter… they are basically synonymous… Go have fun, get the kids home and dry, make some hot chocolate, throw on a fire, and they’ll be lights out in less than 20!

 

Family sports do more than just make your kids fall asleep (which is a plus) They also promote physical activity, family commitment and communication and brings you closer to your kids. It might even inspire them to further pursue some sort of sport or at the very least physical activity.
