Story Path is a fun way to encourage physical activity and literacy! Story Path is made up of individual pages of a children’s book which are placed on different signs. The signs are placed in the ground along a short walking path within the community. You can enjoy a stroll along the path and read a fun children’s book as you walk along!
The best part is it’s an easy way to knock out two steps in the 5-2-1-0 program: getting 1 hour or more of physical activity each day and 2 hours or less of screen time. Give your child’s eyes a break from their digital screens while getting them up and moving on the Story Path.
