I am so excited for spring for so many reasons, but am especially looking forward to taking family walks again. My husband just started keeping track of his steps every day with a pedometer, and now there’s a kid-friendly version out to make it fun for the young’ns, and even include some rewards!
The GeoPalz activity tracker is the first decorative pedometer and online game that tracks your child’s physical activity throughout the day. Every mile counts as one pedpoint when you register the GeoPalz online. Your child can manually enter his or her steps online and once the points start to add up, he or she can use the points to redeem fun, activity-focused prizes like you’d see at the arcade- baseballs, Frisbees and even gift cards to popular stores, such as Target.
Encourage your kids to wear it during walks, while playing sports like basketball, and just playing every day. (I’d love to find out how many miles my two year old runs through the house every day.)
