Resources for Families from The American Heart Association

The American Heart Association offers resources and activities that schools can share with their families to help kick cabin fever to the curb. Physical activity can help kids feel better, improve mental health and reduce stress that can occur while being disconnected from friends and school. The goal is to help parents keep kids healthy, active, entertained and occupied during school closures. Available resources include home activities, recipes and tips for parents which serve as a welcome distraction to keep kids moving and having fun.
