Healthy Kids Day

Healthy Kids Day-Mark your Calendars
Saturday, April 21, 2018
School’s close to being out and it’s time to relax, decompress and have fun
with friends. Summer is the time for kids to get up, get out and grow. But
for some kids, exposure to activities that stimulate the body and mind ends
with the school year. In fact, research shows that kids are prone to gain
more weight and fall behind in studies.
On April 21, the Y will celebrate Healthy Kids Day, our national
initiative to improve the health and well-being of kids. Details include:
 Healthy Eating Snacks and Tips from Kay Taylor-HyVee
 Mad Scientist-Kid Friendly, fun Science Experiments
 Book Drive-Bring your unwanted kid’s books to the Y-We need them!
 Reading Corner/Reading Games-Learn about fun books and even play some reading games.
 Zumba Dance Party
 Gaga Dodgeball Pit
 Water Safety presentation with our Aquatics Staff
 Pickleball
 Summer Day Camp Games
 Way to Grow-Togetherhood participants will help you plant your own vegetable.
 Art Wall
 Bike Safety with the Columbus Police Department
 Columbus Fire Department will be here with their Fire Truck!

This event is free and open to the public!
