  • Find a theme: Get together with your family and pick out your favorite movie or book to theme your @Home field day event.
  • Choose what works for your family:  Choose your level of competition. Your family can all be on the same team working together toward a common goal, or you can split up and make teams.
  • Make your own team logo or family crests! Whether dividing up by teams or working as one group, design a team logo. Pick a color, animal, flower, or tree.  Coordinate team outfits and choose a healthy team snack.
  • Designate roles: Decide on the “jobs” each family member will have. For example, the team chef makes the healthy team snacks, the team stylist picks “uniforms,” and the team manager keeps track of time and checks off activities as you complete them.
  • Print out these mini posters about Good Listening, Respect, and Teamwork, and post around the house.
