Things I like Thursday: healthy-living activity

My Brownie Girl Scouts are working on healthy-living activities with their family this week for their homework.  To help encourage them, I wrote them a letter with tips and ideas.

I also added a resource page for them to look at with their parents, here’s a snippet that may be useful for some readers:

I can’t wait until our meeting on the 28th to see what kind of healthy-living activities they did with their family.  Whether it was trying new foods, trying new activity, less tv, more moving, teaching their family a new game, making better food and drink choices, etc. 

I’m doing the homework as well 🙂  I will start with Dan on Saturday and my mom and dad on Wednesday of next week.  I don’t have to do their homework activities, but I think it’s a good example to show them I am working on the same goals as them!
