When kids are in school, teachers know that the best way to keep them well-behaved and focused is to get them outside for recess or to the gym for P.E. at regular intervals. When school is out, we sometimes forget that … and then wonder why our kids are climbing all over us and getting into fights with each other. If the weather is bad and you don’t happen to live in an indoor playground, there’s no shame in turning to kids exercise videos and mobile apps for help.
When I was a kid, the only options for this were extended dance parties and following along to my mother’s aerobics videos. I may not have gotten the moves down, but I certainly had fun and learned to associate that fun with physical action (something I never did when it came to sports). Those of you with similar fond memories will be pleased to discover that there are tons of cheesy exercise videos available to stream on Amazon Prime — no VHS player necessary.
Your kids, however, might have a different threshold for camp. Don’t worry, there is an app, YouTube channel, or website that will suit them here. You may also want to look up your local yoga studios and gyms to see if they offer live streams of their classes. That way you can continue this healthy exercise habit when it’s time to get back out into the real world.
