Everything is a game to most kids so if you have a way to incorporate fun with healthy habits, youve won them over.

We can sing some songs while washing hands with soap and we can make visual posters in the classroom for making health food choices by showing a candy picture followed by an effect of tooth ache or tummy ache and a picture choosing healthy fruits and vegetables by an effect of happy face.
Candies-> tummy ache
Veggies/fruits-> happy face

- Pay attention to the kind of food you buy, Eat meals and snacks together as a family. Monitor the children’s activities and make physical activity part of family’s routine.

One way to make healthy habits fun is by incorporating games and activities that promote physical activity, such as dancing, scavenger hunts, or relay races. You can also make it fun by involving children in food preparation and cooking activities.

La canción de limpieza siempre ayuda a los niños a guardar los juguetes de manera oportuna. También acerco el taburete al cambiador y al lavabo para que se sientan más independientes y observen la rutina de cambio de pañales/lavado de manos. También nos tomamos de la mano y hacemos una marcha/“canto de dinosaurio” cuando salimos del salón de clases.La canción de limpieza siempre ayuda a los niños a guardar los juguetes de manera oportuna.

By reading books demonstrates what happens when we do healthy things. Singing songs and doing crafts to make it fun to learn and apply in their daily lives.

If you show excitement about the topic, the child will usually show an interest and willingness to try. Try to involve music or songs as much as you can.

How can you make healthy habits fun?
1. Use handwashing as a fun bubbly reward
2. Encourage veggie eating by saying “eat something green”
3. Use games to promote physical exercise

songs, games, dances, showing them that you like it and how its good for you, are all good ways to show healthy habits.

I think we can make healthy habits fun by make the them a game or having a rewards system. Or by having a song to go along with it.

You can teach them why fruits and veggies are good with songs and fun videos. You can keep the kids moving with fun kid work out videos. Play games that involve movement. Kids love music and moving constantly. You have to provide the structure, and they will follow suit.

Games are always fun for children, so I would try to run it into an interactive game of some sort., Perhaps I could also incorporate arts and crafts, or role-playing and pretend play.
