While some kids are running to soccer, swimming, baseball or other organized sports after school, some parents can't afford those types of organized activities. But, that doesn't mean you can't get your kids up and moving.
Parents, share your ideas to get your kids off the couch and away from the TV and computer during the weekdays after they get home from school.

Post your after-school activity ideas, and don't forget use the "Activity" drop-down when you post!
