Anyone (students, parents/caregivers, educators, school administrators, community members, businesses) can take action during Every Kid Healthy Week. You can follow the Every Kid Healthy Week daily themes or build your own activities based on your needs. Most importantly, share what you’re doing so we can count your actions.
To participate at home this year, in addition to the resources linked above, we recommend following us on social media where we’ll be posting activity ideas each day. We’ll also be doing live videos on Facebook with activities for each day’s theme.
Facebook Live Healthy Activities!
(Each video is only about 10 minutes long.)
