Summer is the perfect time for us to get out and enjoy the outdoors! Even if it's just a picnic in our backyard! If you're still wrapping up your homeschool year or you are a year round homeschool family, take a healthy summer snack break outside. Studies have shown that even 5 minutes outdoors can boost your mental health, so why not go for it?! Even better, follow it up with some activity or play outdoors with your kids!
Here are a few ideas to get your started!
5 Healthy Snacks for Outdoor Breaks
- Apple slices and almond butter.
- Yogurt tubes (try Siggi's for a healthier choice or make your own!).
- Turkey and cheese roll ups. Throw a slice or two of bell pepper inside for a fun crunch.
- Watermelon. It's summer folks!
- ICE POPS!!! Cut out the sugar and make your own.
5 Healthy Activities for Outdoor Breaks
- Go for a 5 minute walk through your neighborhood.

- Jump on a trampoline or just dance in your backyard!
- Stretch! Yoga anyone?
- 2 square or 4 square (order your four square ball here)
