Here's an idea for a school or an afterschool program to do. I have read about some organizations creating plays about healthy eating and daily exercise to help kids learn about nutrition in a fun, engaging way.
But how about if the schools let the kids come up with a list of healthy activities and created short skits about it. Then they could perform their skits for the younger students and have lots of fun doing it. Little children often look up to the older children. And kids are so great at creatively coming up with ways to communicate messages to each other so that it really has meaning to them.
Maybe some of the skits could perform for PTA night. Talk about giving the parents a little FUN way to learn about nutrition!
