Finish Summer Strong and Health as a Family

As summer is wrapping up, it’s a great idea to get outside and enjoy the beautiful state we live in. There’s really nothing better than being in the sun together as a family having fun. Here are a few ideas of active ways to spend your time with your kids, and ways to ensure that they are being healthy while at home.

SNACK ATTACK

One of the simplest ways to make sure that your kids are healthy while they’re at home is to make sure that your house is stocked with healthy foods. That way, when the kids are ravenous monsters, they have plenty of good options to choose from. Some of our favorite kid-friendly, parent, and nutritionist approved snacks are: baby carrots, snacking bell peppers, veggie straws, applesauce, cheese sticks, and fruit cups. Just be wary of some “healthy” snacks like some dried fruits, trail mixes, and juices can be extremely high in added sugar- an alternative is to make your own. Feeling ambitious? Try making home-made granola bars or frozen yogurt drops for cooling treats.

GET MOVING

Here are some ideas to get your family out and active, all while having fun together.

  • Soak up the sun at our outdoor pools at the Fort Collins Club or Miramont South.
  • Biking is an amazing family activity that keeps the body moving and allows you to see awesome sights. You could even load your bikes up on the car and take a trip to a trail outside of town. Make sure you and your bikes are ready for the adventure!
  • Plan a field day at home and set up various games and activities for your kids, such as cornhole, tag, jump rope, catch, etc.

BRAIN FOOD

Not only do kids need for their bodies to stay healthy, but they need their brains to stay in shape. Keep that cognitive power sharp by getting them a daily workbook that provides 15-20 minutes of appropriate level activities for them. An alternative is to provide them with flashcards to keep their memory up or give them an educational game to play. For a more fun option, critical thinking games are sure to keep your kids busy and thinking.

We’ve only included our favorite summertime ideas here, so get creative if these don’t quite suit your fancy! Really, anything you can do to spend time as a family is great as the summer winds down, be sure to get outdoors and have some fun!

Boyd Lake Bash | September 7

The 1st Annual Boyd Lake Bash is only a little over a month away! 

Genesis and Breakaway Athletic Events are partnering to bring our community a morning mix of events and classes at Boyd Lake. 

Bring your friends and family members to participate in FREE fitness and fun from Genesis including yoga, stretching areas for pre and post race, a bootcamp, giant inflatable kids obstacle course and more! 

The Boyd Lake Bash Multisport Festival is a hidden gem of a venue, tucked quietly along the front range. Why add this newly announced event to your schedule? Beautiful mountain views, semi-closed bike course, ideal weather, and beginner friendly race options for the whole family! Did we mention waking up just 200ft from the transition area at one of the Boyd Lake Campsites? Yup! There’s that too. 

Sitting on the east side of Loveland, and southeast of Fort Collins, this close-to-home multisport race event will have a festival feel that’s intimate, fun, and refreshing. The course layouts make race morning packed with spectator cheering and multiple athlete flybys. With ON-SITE camping options, make a weekend out of this event and plan some extra relaxation time. For this first season the entire event is limited to just 400 athletes, don't miss out on the most beginner friendly event to date!
