That's the perfect time of year for fab family outings. As soon as the temperatures inched above 50 degrees, we were making plans to spend entire afternoons outside. And you reap so many benefits from just enjoying the warmer weather. Hitting the outdoors with your family is a great opportunity to get healthy too. Check out the 20 ways to have fun while getting fit with your family.










  1. Bike ride around the neighborhood
  2. Run through the sprinklers
  3. Water gun battle
  4. Go hiking
  5. Fly kites
  6. Play a baseball game against another family
  7. Water balloon fight
  8. Play capture the flag
  9. Plan a treasure hunt
  10. Go rollerblading
  11. Play kick the can
