12Bursts and YMCA 360 Update

12Bursts is on the move with daily physical activity and mindfulness challenges for kids and families. We've witnessed firsthand how excited kids can get from playing. It's adult-friendly too, so please share it with any of your child care teams and parent friends who are at home with kids.
