And what happens right after we eat way too much on this happy, family holiday? Hmm, perhaps we need to take a look at different ways to work off that big meal. Besides driving immediately to the nearest park to kick the soccer ball around, here are some suggestions from the library:
Click on the Fun and Games button above to the right, and then Sports.
From there try different selections such as Skateboard Science or even Juggling!
Or try searching Kids InfoBits for more information on food and the human body, under "Health" and then "Food and Nutrition."
Still feeling too full and sluggish? Then go to the library catalog and look for books or DVDs on fitness, yoga, nutrition or your favorite sport. Try these:

or a how-to book or DVD of yoga:
