Resources for families during COVID-19 school closures

Keeping kids healthy, active, entertained and occupied when school’s closed can be challenging, but we’re here to help. The American Heart Association offers resources and activities to help your family kick cabin fever to the curb. Physical activity helps kids feel better, improve their mental health and even reduce stress. So check out our home activities, recipes and tips to keep kids moving and having fun.

Kids Heart Challenge™

The 10-day Kick Cabin Fever to the Curb challenge has been created to help parents keep kids occupied, entertained, and healthy during school closures.

  • Stay heart-healthy with dance routines, jump rope skills and family game day ideas.
  • Inspire your kids to help in the kitchen and sneak in more veggies while you’re at it.
  • Hear inspiring stories to help your family engage in meaningful conversations about gratitude and family health.
  • Learn life-saving skills such as CPR and how to spot a stroke.
