The Museum, Ontario- Waterloo

The museum- waterloo.jpgThe Museum is leading the way as a vital community resource by showcasing local innovation, protecting the environment, celebrating imagination and bringing educational experiences to life through the power of collaboration.  Kid’s in Motion: A Healthy Start is a new program based on all of these characteristics and is the first curriculum based program related directly to health and nutrition that has been held at the Waterloo Regional Children’s Museum.  This program will teach the children the importance of respecting their body by eating healthy and being physically fit, and will also help to create a community of healthy young adults whose habits can be passed on to future generations.

The Kids in Motion program runs during the school year for students in junior kindergarten to grade 3 and grade 5. Teachers and students get ‘in motion’ during the museum visit and continue to stay engaged back in the classroom.

With assistance from GoodLife Kids Foundation over 1,000 students will have the opportunity to be inspired to lead a healthy and active life.

Today we're celebrating the #SummerSolstice and #InternationalYogaDay Yoga is an awesome way to help kids develop important physical and mental skills - and it can be easily adapted for all ages and abilities! For younger children, keep practices short and use stories and familiar animals or objects as cues for them to mimic with their poses. For older kids, try building to some more challenging balancing poses or turn inwards to focus on the stress-relieving benefits of the practice. #activekids #yoga
