3. Hacky Sacks and Chinese Jump Ropes

A great idea is to get kids moving instead of sitting around eating candy. Hacky sacks, which are little rice or bean filled bags that are balanced on feet and kicked to one another, are a fun choice. They are available for purchase in bulk at most party-supply stores, can be easily made or purchased by local or online artisans. Chinese jump ropes are also available in bulk but can easily be made by cutting thin rope elastic into 10 feet each then knot the end. Include instructions and watch neighborhood children get active again.
