Exercises With Kids: 6 Simple Ones You Can Do At Home
It's official: summer is over. Now get over it. Cooler days and a little rain isn't an excuse for parents – or kids – to plop on the couch and completely veg out in blanket cocoons. Get up, get moving, and plan exercises with kids to do indoors. Grab the mobile devices and video games away from the kids, turn off the television, and clear the room. Yes, they will throw a fit. Expect death stares, but do not give in. Devices and screens are the enemy. Today's e-centric kids spend around seven hours a day glaring at a screen, and according to the Centers for Disease Control, about 12.7 million children between the ages of two and 19 are obese. Slay the dragons of technology and pluck the little ninjas off the couch, because parents who plan out exercises with kids are parents who raise active and healthy children. Get ready for the family battle of Ultimate Ninja Warrior, because the competition will get crazy. And, oh yeah, kids will have a blast not realizing that they're actually exercising. Go forth and plan a day of exercises with kids, and unleash the littlest ninjas in training to see who will become the Ultimate Ninja Warrior of the household.
