It’s once again time to Flourish with Fitness by taking October’s Fitness Spooktacle fitness challenge.
The Fitness Spooktacle consists of three separate workouts. Each workout is represented by one of three spooky Halloween images; a jack-o’-lantern, a skeleton, and a vampire bat.
On the exercise calendar, each day is highlighted by one of the three images. For example, day 1 has an image of a jack-o’-lantern. Therefore, on that day, students complete the jack-o’-lantern workout. A student’s level of spook (level of fitness), determines how many rounds of the workout he/she completes. Students cross out or write their initials on the number completed. At the end of the month, my students add up the total number of days completed, have their parents sign the bottom of the calendar, and return it to me for a certificate and shoe token.

The Play it Up! 30-day challenge is geared to give children a variety of ideas for both indoor and outdoor play. This is another challenge that can be offered at any time of year. However, I like to offer this challenge over the holiday break and summer vacation.
As Albert Einstein once said, “PLAY is the highest form of research!” And like I always say, “Play is a child’s best way to exercise body and brain.” NEVER STOP PLAYING!
