Basic Exercise For Your Children


Engaging them with this fun and healthy exercise can make your child more proactive in all activities. Try these fun and simple exercise games that can help your child fit and healthy thru out there childhood.

Below is an excerpt of an article that shares the exercises you can try at home you child:

Squat relay: Have kids line up on opposite sides of the room, facing each other. On “go,” all kids run toward the center of the room and meet in the middle. They do three squats, giving each other a high-five with both hands in between each rep. Then they return to the starting point and repeat. The focus is on the high-fives and the social interaction. If you have a large group, you could have the lines shift sideways between reps so kids meet a different friend in the middle of the room each time.

Corners: Divide kids up so that they each have a home corner. Then have them run around the room in a circle, On your cue, they return to their home corner and do a few easy exercises (say, 5 jumping jacks or one 30-second plank). Akpan suggests letting kids decide what exercises to do in each corner to give them ownership over their game.

Go Back and Hit It: On “go,” kids run forward in designated lines (see photo). Then call out “Back” so they have to run in reverse. Finally, cue “Hit it!” to incorporate another skill, such as a tuck jump or squat. Again, give kids input on choosing the “hit it” skill.

Traffic: In this BOKS variation of “Red Light, Green Light,” there’s more going on on the road. Kids stop and start at red and green lights, but they also do a side shuffle for a yellow light, do bunny hops at speed bumps, link elbows and run with a partner for a “carpool,” and even gallop when the cue is “deer crossing.” Make up some more moves with your kids!
