Hula Hoops, jump ropes and hopscotch. Three of my daughters most favourite things to do in the backyard in the summer, spring and fall. Just getting active is something that I want to promote to both of my kids, because it is so important today in our society where obesity is a HUGE concern among children. And we as the parents need to be aware and help put a stop to this growing epedmic. This was an item on our Summer Bucket List. Teach my daughter how to hula hoop and jump rope. I have taught her, but she is still learning. I got the small hula hoop from the Dollar Store, which was great because she is WAY too small for those big hoops!
