PLAY FOR FITNESS – December Fitness Challenge


The December Flourish with Fitness challenge stresses the significance of good old-fashioned PLAY. As Albert Einstein famously stated, “Play is the highest form of research.” It is my belief that play is the ultimate means of physical, social, and emotional exercise for children.

Play allows children to use their creativity while developing their imagination, dexterity, and physical, cognitive, and emotional strength. Through play, children learn at a very early age to engage and interact in the world around them. Play is a cherished part of childhood. By finding the right balance between work and play, children will grow up happier, well adjusted, and more prepared to conquer the world.


  1. Each day, students PLAY FOR FITNESS indoors or outdoors.
  2. Use the indoor or outdoor activities listed or create your own fitness fun.
  3. Participate in one or more activities for at least one hour throughout the day.
  4. Write down your chosen activities on the calendar provided!

At the end of the month, students add up the total number of days completed, have their parents sign the bottom of the sheet, then return it to a PE teacher. Students completing at least 10 days will receive an award certificate and toe token.
