Fitness has become such a big part of our family lifestyle that we were thrilled when we were asked to participate in Fit Made Fun Day with Leap Frog & CLIF Kid! On Saturday September 6th, 300+ kids and families set out to achieve a new GUINNESS WORLD RECORD®. In honor of the launch of the new LeapBand activity tracker for kids, Fit Made Fun Day encouraged families to get up and participate in fun creative activities while having fun together. LeapFrog also invited families nationwide to host their own Fit Made Fun Day!

Our Fit Made Fun Party Day with Leapfrog, LeapBand, & CLIF Kid

We had a blast participating in the Fit Made Fun Day record-breaking challenge. We challenged the kids at our party to 3 different activities, with each activity lasting 10 minutes. We also water and plenty of CLIF Kid bars ready at the refreshment table to keep everyone hydrated and properly fueled for activity.

Our first activity challenge was a snorkel dance party. Think freestyle swim while holding your nose and wiggling your body around. We had fun “Under the Sea” music playing to keep us all moving. 1o minutes of continuous dancing is a great workout!

For our next part of the challenge, we made grass angels. These were just like snow angels but on this hot day we could only wish for snow!  When the 10 minutes were up we took a water break and got ready to finish up our challenge.

Our 3rd and final challenge was “Follow the Leader”.One participant was selected as the leader and the other participants were to follow the leaders instruction to complete a movement. Some of the fun ones were “jump like a kangaroo”,  “swim like a stingray”, and “crawl like a bear”.  Believe it or not the adults in our group had done a few “bear crawls” themselves at their workout earlier that morning. We all had a good chuckle when they threw that one out there. Bear crawls are tough!

The kids were so excited to get to try out the LeapBand activity tracker! Our own kids have watched both mom & dad utilize our Fitbits for over a year now to keep us motivated toward health goals. The LeapBand makes physical activity so much fun for kids. It really promotes an active lifestyle and continued healthy habits.

I was curious if the novelty would wear off after our Fit Made Fun party but there are no signs of the excitement slowing. They are loving the LeapBands!! They put them on each morning after their shower. I love that it has a rechargeable battery. We simply charge it on the laptop before they hop into bed at night.

I suspect these will be a HOT Christmas item! You can order yours online or pick one up in stores nationwide. The LeapBand activity tracker (MSRP $39.99) is available now in green, pink and blue. Activities and challenges are free and available for download www.leapfrog.com.

Even though the hot temperatures will be cooling off soon be sure to remind your kids ( & yourselves!) to hydrate and fuel their well prior, during and after physical activity. CLIF Kid bars are a great way to do this and can be purchased at H-E-B, Costco, Target, and Walmart. Click here to find them at a retailer near you.

What are some of your family’s fun and creative ways to encourage each other to stay active?

    I have seen those watches and wondered if they would help to motivate my video game boy. I know the Clif Bars motivate him to go hiking, he is not allowed to eat them unless he is out and active! He loves those bars enough to put down his games!

  9. These are awesome and such a great way to get the whole family active.

  15. We encourage the kids by finding things to do outside and making games out of it. We have also encouraged them to find a sport they like and stick with it. We cheer them on and watch their growth over the season, it’s incredible to see. Our daughter has chosen cross country and our son baseball. As a family we find races a few times a year that we can run together and we train for that race as a family. I love being active and seeing our kids be active too. Z-Bars are HUGE hits in our house, they are in lunches and go to snacks after practices. I’ve Leap Frog thing, but I’m going to be on the lookout for it at stores because it seems awesome!

  22. Both of my Kids would be all over the Cliff Bars!! My nephew would go mad for the Leap Watch!! I love Leap. They are always innovating. That rocks!We are a crazy active family. Too active actually. My daughters swim and do cross country and they also do horseback riding and acting and dancing and martial arts. Busy. We need nutrition that helps and the Cliff bars sound amazing! Especially since I don;t want to feed them the big Cliff bars yet.
