  1. Looks really fun and healthy too…I love that kids are exposed to more physical activities. With the advent of gadgets and technology handing everything to us much easier, more and more kids grow up less active and less healthy. With more programs and activities like this, we can welcome the positive effects of technology with a healthier disposition.
