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
