Play Ball – at the Jungle

Team sports can be an incredibly wonderful experience in a child’s life. Whether they begin when they’re first eligible based on age, or whether it comes as a desire later. Extra-curricular, athletic activities are a great way to encourage exercise, teach sportsmanship, ethics, and fair play, strengthen friendships, and most importantly, to inspire fun.

Coaches are often looking for ways to motivate their team and inspire teamwork. The best foundation for a cohesive team is one that is built on fun. While winning is great, it’s always important to remember the words of the great sportswriter Grantland Rice; “It’s not whether you win or lose; it’s how you play the game.” As cliché as that may be, the basic tenant of truth holds true. Winning is of no great value if it wasn’t fun in the attempt, and the sting of a loss can be lessened if the kids are always encouraged to have fun.

What better way to begin the process of building team fun than to start your season with a team event at Scooter’s Jungle. Kids who did not know each other before the beginning of a season will get through that awkward first meeting if it takes place at a fun, neutral environment that encourages fun first. A team event at Scooter’s Jungle is the perfect ice-breaker.

Your team members already know each other pretty well? Then how about a mid-season playtime event at Scooter’s just for fun, or even as an incentive for being great sports and working together toward a mutual goal, or as a pick-me-up morale booster for the kids! Looking for a different way to celebrate the end of the season? A trip to Scooter’s Jungle is the perfect children’s activity that will make you an all-star amongst coaches and the parents. Give us a call. Our amazing staff will make your team event a walk in the park. Even better, it’ll be a romp in the jungle!

Scooter’s Kitchen – Homemade Pizza

You don’t have to tell a parent that children are very tactile.  Just the mere mention of the words “Don’t touch!” to a child and you know you’ve pretty much made it a temptation almost impossible to resist.  Which is why getting your kids in the kitchen at an early age is a great teaching tool.  Children learn with all of their senses.  They love to touch, feel, taste, smell.  Even children as young as two, can find a great sense of accomplishment by helping to prepare their own food, with the added bonus being that they like to eat the food they helped prepare.

Pizza is one of those magical things that falls under the win-win category with kids.  They love pizza.  Given the choice, children would probably eat pizza for breakfast, lunch, dinner, AND between meal snacks.  What better food can satisfy both happy tummies AND teachable moments?    Kneading and rolling pizza dough is a tactile joy that fine tunes motor functions and helps strengthen developing hand and arm muscles.  Spreading pizza sauce can be the source of giggles when the sauce becomes a canvas for edible art.  Yes, it can get messy, but one of the things that we encourage during family fun time in the kitchen is an old adage that Granny used to say; “Everything always tastes better when it was messy to make and you smiled while you were making it!”  Expect a little bit of mess.  After all, we’re having fun, right?

Homemade pizza is inexpensive, easy to make, can be easily adjusted ingredient-wise to make even the finickiest eater happy, and ultimately, it’s one of the best ways to introduce children to being pro-active in their nutritional choices.

Why not have a homemade pizza night tonight?  Here’s a great site from a mom who has a weekly homemade pizza night.   She makes it really easy, and she even appeals to Scooter’s sweet tooth with a “Sweet Pizza Pie” recipe for dessert!  Mmmmm…
