Hey ‘watcha’ doin’ watching TV?
There’s so much more that you can see

We need some EARTH ENERGY XX EARTH ENERGY

Swing from a tree, or fly a kite just get….

Play outside, and you will see,
it’s good XX for you XX
It’s good for me, it’s good for you,
It’s good for you and me… EARTH ENERGY
Now that you know it’s good to play
Outside in fresh air every day
Find a friend and show the way
Get your EARTH ENERGY today!!
Jot down all the things that you can do
When you’re getting bored choose one or two
It makes your brain and body strong and then you’ll want some more
Here’s a list to get you started heading out that door!...
Hula Hooping, sledding, Sidewalk chalk…..
Get your family and your dog and go take a walk
With an adult, you can go for a swim…..
Rake leaves in a great big pile….jump right in
Wiffle ball, sticky ball, a game called Croquet………
Swinging and sliding, at the park you can play
Flashlight, laser, freeze, or any other Tag
Running through a sprinkler, Capture the flag.
Gunny sack, Hacky Sack, soccer, or Bocce
Frisbee throw, put on a show, or play some field hocky
Rollerbladding, skateboards, bikes, a helmet keeps you safe
Sandbox, Bean Bag toss, and running in a race.
With boxes, hoses, chairs, build an obstacle course
Play a cowboy game with a stick as a horse
Red light Green Light and Eenie Ayenie Over
Blow some bubbles, catch them, or just roll in the clover
Kick the Can, build a snow man, play some hopscotch
Drop the Hankey, Duck Duck Goose, What time is it Mr. Fox?
Snow shoes, Horse Shoes, Mother May I
Fold some paper airplanes, see how far they can fly!
Basketball, baseball, , football, throw, pass, punt
Simon Says, Hokey Pokey, Scavenger Hunt

Go out and get Earth Energy, It’s so good for you!!!
