Trick-or-treating is often seen as something only kids do in order to get more candy, which might scare you because this means the household has even more sweets. However, it really depends on how you look at it.
Trick-or-treating can actually become a good way to get in some fun exercise with the family. While it depends on everyone’s weight and how far you go, trick-or-treating for just an hour can burn about 200 calories when you run a little bit while you are out.
Follow these suggestions for turning trick-or-treating into a healthy family activity:
Jog, Run, or Skip Between Houses: Instead of just walking casually from house to house, turn trick-or-treating into a family exercise routine. You can do this by challenging everyone in the family to either jog or run in between houses.
You would be amazed by how tiring this gets, which means it is burning calories! Just make sure the kids are wearing comfortable shoes with their costumes and they don’t have long capes or gowns that would cause them to trip.
You can also alternate with skipping between houses, which is another great exercise.
Go To The Mall And Use The Stairs: When you don’t want to go trick-or-treating outside, the mall is one of the next best options. It is safe and secure, well-lit, and keeps you out of the elements.
When you are going to the mall for some trick-or-treating, make sure you are using the stairs and never the escalator or elevator. Try to go up and down stairs every time you come to a new set until you have hit all of the stores.
Go Out For A Longer Period Of Time: Instead of just going out for an hour in your neighborhood, consider walking a little further to other safe neighborhoods. If you can trick-or-treat for two or three hours, just imagine how many more calories everyone burns.
Turn It Into A Fitness Game: To go one step further, you can make a fitness game out of it. Keep a list of simple workouts you can do in the street, and go down the list doing one workout after every house.
After one house, you can do squats, or when you reach a house with spider webs in the front yard or a pumpkin on the stoop, you need to do lunges. You can also do this when you see certain costumes.
