The joy of running together
Embrace the joy and camaraderie that comes with running as a family. Here’s what makes running an excellent family activity:

- Health benefits: Besides being a fun family activity, running is a fantastic way to boost everyone’s health. The heart-pumping, energy-boosting benefits of a regular jog are something the whole family can enjoy.

Create a progress calendar
- Design your calendar: Start by choosing a calendar template or a large poster board. The idea is to have enough space to plot out days or weeks.
- Decorate with clipart: Use our running clipart to add fun visuals to your calendar. You can assign different cliparts for different types of runs or milestones.
- Track runs and achievements: Mark each day you and your family go for a run. You can use different colors or symbols to represent various achievements like distance run or personal best times.
- Display and update regularly: Place your calendar in a common area where it’s easily visible. Regularly updating it turns tracking into an exciting and rewarding activity for the whole family.
Craft a DIY progress journal using jogging clipart
- Assemble your supplies: Grab a binder, some blank paper, dividers, and, some binder covers — and, of course, your running clipart collection. 😉
- Personalize the journal: Let each family member decorate their section of the binder. They can use the clipart along with other art supplies to make it truly theirs.
- Log your runs: After each run, spend some time together jotting down what you did, how far you ran, and how everyone felt. You can use the clipart to symbolize different weather conditions, routes taken, or challenges overcome.
- Reflect and review: Regularly go through the journal together. This not only allows you to see your progress, but also becomes a great way to discuss what you’re enjoying about running and what you want to try next.
Making running exciting for kids
To keep the younger members of your family engaged and enthusiastic, here are some playful strategies:
- Set goals: Encourage kids to set personal running goals. Visualize these goals using our clipart, making goal-setting a fun and colorful process.
- Fun running games: Introduce games like tag or treasure hunts to make running more enjoyable. Our clipart can be used to create game maps or reward charts.
