Getting active with your kids is a great way to get a workout, get your kids active, and to have fun with them at the same time! I made these Animal Action Cards years ago when Zane and Zarek was so little! Check out his demonstration below! Now you too can print the cards and play with your kids too!
How To Play
The idea behind this card game is to help you and your kids to get more active. You can play the game in a few different ways.
Version 1: Shuffle the cards, deal out 5 cards laying face down, flip over each card and act out the animal action.
Version 2: Shuffle the cards, set deck face down, flip a card and act out the animal action. Do this until you have made it through each card.
Version 3: Set a timer for how long you want to exercise. Follow the directions for version 2 but when you get to the end of the deck reshuffle and keep going.

Ingredients: Sugar (crushed bones), Butter (fat), Oatmeal (Dead Grass), Peanut Butter (Dead Bugs), Cocoa (Dirt), & Milk w/Green Food Color (Swamp Water)
I quickly boiled the sugar, butter, cocoa, and milk
Zane practiced his letters while we waited for them to cool
They loved these cookies! My husband super duper loved them! I was surprised to find each cookie only 128 calories and way worth it!
