Canopy wants to support you in promoting quality family time in your home. Check out some fun things we’ve highlighted throughout May that you can do with your family!
Silly Animal Walks
Is your child needing a new way to move his or her body to work out some excess energy? Try these silly animal walks! Maybe consider adding them to an obstacle course to make it extra challenging (and extra fun!) Compare yourself to videos of real animals and see who in your family has the BEST silly animal walk.

Use this helpful self-care tool to help your child identify and talk about their feelings. Tell him or her about a time when you felt that way. If your child is sad or angry, help them identify ways to make him or herself feel better such as dancing, singing, drawing, riding their bike or taking a nap. This is a great way to help your child build positive coping skills for life!
