Indoor Exercise for Kids
Snow days are no excuse for slow days. Cold weather may seem like the ultimate "get out of exercise free" card, but it shouldn't be. Regardless of the outside temperatures, your children need to stay active. It's the foundation for a healthy lifestyle for kids and adults alike. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend that children get at least one hour of physical activity every day come rain, sleet or snow. While this may seem like a cinch during those warmer months, coming up with creative ways to stay active can present a challenge during winter. Here are a few ways to keep your children on their toes. Have a dance off. Make a playlist that comprises of your child's favorite songs. If dancing freestyle isn't his thing, invest in a dance video or game. Other inexpensive toys that your child can play with include Twister, hula hoops, jump rope and other games that require your child to get moving.
