Setting Goals For Walking or climbing stairs

Did you know that setting goals will help keep you motivated to achieve what you set out to accomplish. One idea is to think about a walking goal compared to how many steps or stairs it takes to do something.

For example

  • Inside the Statue of Liberty, you can explore the museum in the pedestal and then begin the climb to the crown. The climb itself is 354 steps can you make that your goal?
  • The Eiffel Tower has 108 stories, with 1,710 steps. can you make that your goal?
  • There are 898 steps to the top of the Washington Monument. can you make that your goal?

"Practice with purpose, and watch your potential unfold."

Skill-Building Scavenger Hunt

Create a scavenger hunt that incorporates different skill-building tasks related to their chosen activity. For example, if they're learning to play a musical instrument, hide sheet music or note cards around the area. As girls find each item, they can practice that particular skill before moving on to the next clue.

Each girl can create a goal card specifying what they want to achieve, and they can track their progress throughout the event. Award certificates or badges to celebrate their achievements.
