My family loves playing board games and video games together. While it makes for some fun times and time spent together, playing these games doesn’t really get any physical activity in. Plus, since we homeschool, I like trying to find ways to add in exercise and still make it fun.
We just found out about the board game Fitivities and my kids are in love! Fitivities is a board game but so much more too! It’s a great game to play in groups and to get everyone moving. No matter what age or fitness level you’re at, Fitivities will get you moving and having fun!
The premise is simple: One player from each team, rolls their team’s dice and move that many spaces on the large game mat with their adorable shoe game marker. Remembering the exercise that they landed on, they must run back to their team and spin the arrow on their spinner card. Following the directions on the spinner, each team has to complete the exercise repetitions together before the 2nd player can run back to the game board, roll the dice & start the process all over again. Whichever team manages to make their way all the way around the mat, landing on and completing the first exercise past their starting point, wins the game!
What’s great is that all teams are playing at the same time, doing the exercises in a big group and having a great time. Since Fitivities can be played with 2-24 players (ages 6 to adult), it’s perfect for birthday parties, church youth groups, family BBQs, game nights, camping trips, homeschool groups and so much more! Kids and adults alike have a great time playing and exercising at the same time. It’s also great that there aren’t a bunch of pieces that you have to set up. Fitivities is simply a large game mat, 4 large dice, 4 show markers, 4 spinner cards and the rules. That’s all that’s needed!
Fitivities was created by Sandy “Spin” Slade, who also created Skillastics®, which are the series of oversize board games that over 10 million students around the country have enjoyed. Sandy’s mission has been putting a spin on physical activity and making it not boring. Sandy has performed her basketball-spinning tricks since she was a teen, leading into her showing off her skills at NBA halftime shows. Fitivities is the newest game in bringing Sandy’s dream of bringing physical activity and fun into our homes.
Now two lucky people will win their own Fitivities game. Enter below & good luck!
