Don’t be afraid to play outside!

We believe that outdoor play is the best way to incorporate physical activity in your child’s day.

Contra Costa Health Plan has put together a brochure with helpful tips and resources that takes the worry out of outdoor play.

  • Too cold? Bring a jacket and a hat! Children don’t get sick from playing outside in the cold.
  • Bring jump ropes, frisbee, chalk or beach balls to cut down on costs and invite others to join in.
  • Set limits on  tv time and increase the amount of outdoor time to play and be active as a family
