Teach young people how to make healthy lifestyle choices
Kids won’t listen to lectures about exercise or cholesterol—but they will get involved and learn by participating in fun exercises that help them focus on leading healthy, happy lives.
Wellness Activities for Youth is designed as whole-person, “no-put-down” activities to help young people make healthy choices about physical and emotional health, relationships, stress management, substance abuse, and more. The material is ideal for kids from upper elementary to senior high. Many exercises can be adapted for families.
Wellness Activities for Youth, Volume1 can be used by a variety of people who work with youth—counselors, camp directors, scout leaders, parents, teachers, and youth group leaders, to name just a few. As Sandy says, “Any normal, fun-loving, creative, daring, kid-loving, risk-taking facilitator can create wonderful, creative, awe-inspiriting, attention-getting, fun-=raising, retention-building activities!” Build them into your program using your own good judgment, flexibility, and a democratic leadership style and you’ll find it adds to the effectiveness of your program.
