How might we encourage kids to unplug and play?
After delving into the staggering data about childhood obesity, One Stone students took action to create an experience that would motivate kids to unplug, get off the couch and get outside. Working in partnership with St. Luke’s FitOne, a team of One Stone students staged Outlet, a day of "playcation" that encouraged kids to unplug and get moving. More than thirty wiggly little kids spent the day learning about healthy eating, unplugging, and the finer points of tree tag. These games reinforced a message of 5-2-1-0: Everyday, aim for five servings of fruits and vegetables, less than two hours of screen time, one hour of exercise and zero sugary drinks.
More than thirty kids learned the 5-2-1-0 message in a fun way that also taught them tools to carry it forward to unplug and play!
