You can also give them some goals as motivation to keep them going. Once they’ve kept track for a month, you can try some of the ideas below for the next month, depending on what you’re hoping to accomplish:

  • Match It: If they’re already really active, have them match their activity the next month
  • Beat It: If your aim is to get them moving more, ask them to see if they can beat each count by 1 the next month.
  • Try Something New: Maybe they need to find something they enjoy more, so add a new thing each month (and remove the thing they did the least the previous month) and see if they find something they enjoy more
  • Self Awareness: Give them 1 solo activity,  1 activity with a buddy, 1 group activity, 1 indoor activity, and 1 outdoor activity and see which ones they do the most.  They’ll learn about what kind of activity works best for them!

You can print this one for free, or use The Trip Clip website to edit this and list choose activities that are better suited to your child. Here’s a Bingo Board full of great ideas to start with:
