On Saturday, September 6, 2014 I participated in Fit Made Fun Day. I was sent a fun party pack from Leap Frog and Cliff Kids. I invited over some friends and family. Unfortunately it happened to be the same weekend as my brother in law was taking my nieces and nephews on their first vacation to the beach. So about half of the invited kids could not make it. But we still made it fun even though it was small. This day was picked to coincide with the global launch of the LeapBand, the new wearable activity tracker from Leap Frog. This was a day to encourage kids and their families to jump into motion and experience the fun of an active and healthy lifestyle.
I was very excited to work with Leap Frog on the launch of this great new product. It is so important to get kids moving. With all the electronics out there it is great to see one that encourages moving and getting fit. The LeapBand is a great activity tracker for kids. You get to pick a virtual pet to help you along in your journey to physical fitness. And you get to care for your pet by giving them food, water, and a bath. The LeapBand tells the time, has a timer, and more. There is an activity button that you push and it will tell you what to do, like jump 5 times. As you do your activities you get to collect jewels to keep in your treasure box.
The boys were excited to get started. They followed some of the simple activities the LeapBand told them to do. They loved the timer the best. They would press the time are see how fast they could run. Then we decided to pull out the trampoline and see how many jumps they could do in 30 seconds. They all wanted a chance to try it out. Jayden won for most jumps, Aidan won for highest jump, and Evan won for being a good jumping buddy.
After a good workout it was time for a snack. The boys each picked which Clif Kid Zbar they wanted. This is the first time we tried these bars ad they were a big hit with the kids and even us adults liked them.
When they were done with their snack the kids wanted to get active again. Jayden loves collecting jewels for his treasure chest. The LeapBand s a great way to encourage your kids to get active.
