Once stuck inside and feeling trapped it’s easy to turn to TV and video games to pass the time. But after too many cartoons and not enough movement those young bodies will only gain weight and lose muscle. Pull those little bodies away from the TV, off the couch and into some games that will help keep those frames in good shape as they grow. Elevating heart rates has never been full of more giggles or fun. By developing in your children a love of movement when they’re young, you are setting them up to be stronger, healthier, and disease-free when they’re older.
It is common to turn to structured sports, but the key is in variety of free play. Plus it is free! Indoors or out, making exercise fun can excite children to move around and get them physically vital, stronger and more energetic. It’s a great first step on the road to cultivating a lifetime of health and fitness. Exercise activities enticing children to run, jump, push, pull, play, dance, balance, stretch, and let rip a little, brings fresh blood to their muscles, looseness to their limbs, and alertness to their brains.
