YMCA Heath Kids Day 2016
Today I face painted at the South Orlando YMCA Family Center off W Oak Ridge Road. The event was for their annual Health Kids Day which is a national initiative to improve the health and well-being of kids. The turnout was great and my line was long and steady. I face painted for three hours straight and didn’t get a chance to take a single break. I painted around 60 children during the event. This is my second year painting at this event and I cannot wait for next year. I face paint at three YMCA events a year. They are always a blast and super busy. I am looking forward to face painting at the YMCA Fall Festival because Halloween face paint designs are my favorite!
The event was free and had family-friendly games, activities and resources to keep kids safe, active and learning when the school year ends. Summer should be the time for children to get up, get out and grow. But for some kids, activities that stimulate the body and mind ends when the school year is over. Research shows that kids are prone to gaining weight and fall behind in studies during this time.
