Tips on Exercise For Kids and Activity Ideas
One thing to remember is that kids should engage in exercises appropriate for their age. There are many different exercise activities to try with your kids. Just remember to make it fun! Some exercise activities Summit Children’s Center recommends are aerobic activities. Aerobic activities include jumping rope, riding a bicycle, and skipping rope. Skipping rope is a great exercise even for younger children. Just be sure to buy jump rope that is the correct length for your little ones.
If your child is between the ages six and twelve, consider enrolling them in activities such as karate or ninja classes. Of course, this will also depend on their interests. Maybe your child loves basketball or hockey. Nurture their athletic interests and talents, and consider contacting your child’s school or the local athletics club in your area to see what types of sports and activities are available. Additional activities that are excellent sources of exercise for kids are swimming and gymnastics, and last but not least, family walks.
