fun-exercises-for-kidsChildren need to enjoy fun physical activity. Healthy children run, play, and jump for at least an hour a day. Today many children spend too much sedentary time in front of screens. The technology used for the classroom might result in unhealthy habits. Instead, encourage your family to be physically active with healthy lifestyle habits and fun exercises for kids.

The Importance of Family Fun

Your children want to be with you. When you engage in fun family activities with your children, together you get healthy and build happy memories. There are many fun exercises for kids that you can enjoy with your children. Try some of these fun ideas:

  1. Go on a family hike together
  2. Enjoy swimming in the pool
  3. Play a game of tag, soccer, or hide-n-seek together
  4. Enjoy a family bike ride
  5. Create an obstacle course in your own backyard
  6. Go for a walk around the city
  7. Play sports together
  8. Enjoy a playground
  9. Try an online exercise class
  10. Yoga together

No matter the activity, be sure that you choose age-appropriate exercise. For example, a toddler may not know how to swim. A teen may prefer one-on-one bike rides instead of biking with younger siblings. Ask your children to be a part of the decision making process.
