4.    Take a hike

5.    Visit a new playground – parents can try my Playground Workout for Parents!

6.    Enjoy a bike ride

7.    Hit some tennis balls in an empty parking lot, against a wall, or on your community courts

8.    Make a splash at the pool

9.    Set up a net in the backyard and play badminton

10. Draw with chalk

11. Climb a tree
