Rebound: Parenting active kids during quarantine

Posted at 6:30 PM, May 12, 2020

For many parents, summer seems to be lasting a lot longer this year, with kids home since mid-March due to COVID-19.

Keeping children active while trying to stay home can feel like a struggle.

But there are ways to do that - and they’re actually pretty creative!

Kent Hamilton, a P.E. teacher, says you can use everyday objects to keep the kids off the couch and on their feet.

"All the projects that I create use common household objects," explained Hamilton. "Not things they have to go out and buy or use specialized equipment."

Some of those projects that Kent is talking about include a hair dryer and wiffle ball, a tennis match with a paper plate and balloon, or even Tupperware lids used in air hockey.
