How to Help Kids Reach Their Resolutions

Posted on Jan 04, 2017

Bounce Into a Better Year

Did you make a resolution to spend more time with the kiddos, keep the family active, and budget more in the new year? New Year’s resolutions are a great way to better yourself—and teach kids the value of working for their goals. But they’re also notoriously hard to keep. Let Monkey Joe’s Winter Park help!

Tips for Keeping New Year’s Resolutions (with Kids)

  • Make it fun. No kid wants to do push ups on commercial breaks. Instead of bargaining with your kids to stay active, find an activity they’ll enjoy. At Monkey Joe’s kids can run, jump, bounce, leap, and play to their heart’s content. Staying active has never been this easy!
  • Set measureable goals. Why do most New Year’s resolutions fail? They’re too vague. It’s hard to stick to an imprecise goal like “get healthier.” But if you set “exercise for 1 hour each day” as your resolution, it’s suddenly much more achievable. You can make a chart and check off each day’s progress. This fun for kids, too, helping them see the little successes along the way. Need some help? A Monkey Joe’s Frequent Jumper Card is an easy way to track your progress (and you get a great deal on admission, too!). Buy one and get 10 discounted admissions to Monkey Joe’s Winter Park. Then you can track your activity based on how many admissions you’ve used . . . and how many days you have left to play!

New Year’s resolutions are fun at Monkey Joe’s Winter Park. Bounce into 2017 with confidence in your family’s goals!
