Family games are a great way to incorporate family bonding as well as physical activity together. Uno is a great game that the whole family can play with no equipment needed.
It is also a great game to play on those rainy days!
Step 1: Come up with different movements. Here is a list to get you started, feel free to come up with your own as well!
Touching elbow to opposite knee
Squats (have kids hold a ball to make it a little more fun)
Shoulder taps (in a plank position)
Step ups (on a stair if you have them)
Step 2: Each color card will represent a different movement. Here are some examples:
Green = Hops
Blue = jumping jacks
Yellow = Shoulder taps
Red = squats
Wild = Leg lifts
Draw 2/4 = rest card
Reverse/skip = rest cards
Step 3: Deal out Uno cards
Step 4: When it is your turn to lay a card, you must complete the movement that corresponds to the color. The amount of reps will correspond to the number on the card. 0 on a card represents 10 reps.
Example: I lay a Red 5 - I have to do 5 squats before my next turn
Step 5: Have Fun!!
P.S. You may want to limit this game to 20 minutes as you all may get tired!
There are many different variations of this game- be creative with your version! Tag us in your post when you play this game! We’d love to see what you all come up with!
