My Own Activity Pyramid

Hey, kids!

This is your own personal physical activity pyramid. List your physical activities for a week.

Or draw and color a picture of you doing your activity in the correct space.

Tip for parents!

You can encourage your children to be more active by making time for physical activities as a family.

Families that play together stay healthier together!
