Creating Healthy Celebrations for Healthy Living

In an effort to create healthy Harvest Celebrations in lieu of sweet-centered Halloween parties, Family and Community Health offers a classroom kit with activities, as well as visiting classrooms to facilitate. Activities include speed scarves from the Be Physically Active 2Day toolkit and clementine jack-o-lantern decorating. Over the past two years, more than 20 teachers have opted to have their classrooms participate.
