Plan a race day for the whole family! Since we have babies we held a DIAPER DASH.
This activity would easily work for even high school aged kids and adults. You could create a 5K around your neighborhood, a bike race, an obstacle course, or even a Triathlon if you have a neighborhood pool, beach, or backyard pool. We used a $6 pool from Aldi for our pool!
Masking or duct tape, sidewalk chalk, bikes, helmets, pool/kiddie pool, lawn chairs for spectators (neighbors & family), race medals (ordered from etsy), small table, snacks, drinks, support signs, matching shirts (of course everything is optional)
Set up a table near the finish line with some race medals!
You can have a variety of support crew, even with T-shirts to go with the volunteer position. Daddy was a great volunteer for this!
Set up the race however you would like to! We did a driveway triathlon with neighbors cheering!
Make sure to take a variety of photos for later years. You could make this an annual event!

A job well done!!
