Back-to-school is just over a week away, which also means that the start of the many extra curricular programs.

During the Summer our children are generally pretty active. Between outdoor play, nature hikes, splash pad fun and sports. You can guarantee that kids are usually on their feet at some point during the day, fitting in their 60 minutes of physical activity daily.

However, when a new school year starts it can be a slippery slop and one that finds children not fitting in as much time for physical activity as they should be. There are some easy solutions to that.

An easy solution is taking the time to walk to and from the bus stop or school each day (so long as it is within reasonable distance).

Encourage your child to enroll or tryout for a sports team at school or sign-up your child for an activity or sport in the evening or on the weekend. A mixture of activities at home and ideal is often the perfect cocktail for your child maintain an active lifestyle.

This year, my daughter will be enrolled in ballet, hip hop and swimming lessons. She also would like to try her hands at a learn to skate program. I find these programs help her to grow her teamwork skill set while also teaching her the importance of good sportsmanship.

Often when she is at home you will find her practicing yoga. It is her way to release stress, unwind while centering her mind, body and soul. I find this practice pushes her to not only be bold and active, but it also encourages her to be herself. A valuable lesson that is so important in life.

A brand that my daughter loves that also encourages the same is Jill Yoga.

Jill Yoga is a Canadian-based company that sells quality children’s clothing and yoga apparel for infants, young girls and adult women at great prices! Quite honestly, it is one of my favourite stores to shop for yoga apparel for myself too.

This week, my daughter and I have been hustling to get her back-to-school wardrobe in order. Yes, I am guilty of last minute back-to-school shopping. Can you blame me? It seems like the Summer just zoomed right past us.

One of the stores my daughter insisted on checking out was obviously Jill Yoga. She loves Jill Yoga because not only can she feel stylish and comfortable in their clothing at school, but she can also where those same outfits to dance or swimming over her necessary attire for each of those activities.

Her favourite of the items from the upcoming Fall line being the spacedye seamless top (as seen in the picture above). What she loved even more is that the top is also offered in ladies sizing, which meant we could have a matching Mom-Daughter outfit.

I do have to say for myself, I was quite smitten with the spacedye top. I am currently 13 weeks pregnant, and I can see this shirt being one that I will be able to wear for the duration of my pregnancy and post-pregnancy. The material is stretchy, but not the type of material that would completely lose it’s shape with a growing baby bump. I love versatile tops like that because obviously we all know how expensive maternity apparel can be. This saves me from having to make those unnecessary purchases.
