"Spring" into spring!

Eight ways for kids to get active this April


April 2014

It's finally here: warmer weather, blooming flowers and sunny skies take hold of Central Indiana after Indy's snowiest winter. Now it's time for the kids to come out of winter hibernation and brush off the frost. Here are eight fun ways to get the kids out and active from runs and walks, to yoga, to running the bases at Victory Field.
  1. Bike, skate, run or walk through Downtown Indy's unique Cultural Districts along the 8-mile Indianapolis Cultural Trail. It's easy to make a complete day out of your trek with shops, restaurants, public art and attractions like the Indiana State Museum and Madame Walker Theatre Center along the way. Shop local on Mass Ave, grab a bite in Fountain Square or host your own picnic in White River State Park. See a map, photos and more at www.indyculturaltrail.org.
  2. Kids ages 4 – 18 are invited to explore theatre with the Indiana Repertory Theatre's Youth Classes, kicking off April 14. All classes take place at the IRT and are led by professional IRT artists. Students will participate in acting exercises, immerse themselves in acting styles and produce multiple playlets. Classes are broken down by age group and most cost $80 for six sessions (Class 4, for 14 – 18 year olds, costs $125).
  3. ust because your kid isn't a pro baseball player doesn't mean he or she can't run the bases like one. Kids ages 14 and older who join the Knot Hole Kids Club receive lawn or reserved seat admission to all 72 regular-season, home games at Victory Field , as well as an invitation to run the bases after each Sunday home game. Membership is $16 (or about $0.22 per game).
