Exercise with Kids
Nobody wants their child to be like a couch potato, isn’t it? But during this quarantine time, there has been low or even no amount of physical activity that has been done by you or your kids. If that’s the situation, then I am sure you will love this article.
In the list of these series, I had an idea to include something related to physical activity as well. Not only it is amazing but also helps you get involved in physical fitness as well. In this AtoZ Blogging Challenge with #BlogchatterA2Z I will be sharing the list of fun activities to do with your kids during the quarantine period. And, the word for today’s blog starts with the letter E. And, it is E for Exercise with kids.
Kids have an enormous amount of energy as they are growing up so it is always a good idea to encourage them to go out and play with their friends rather than sticking to their phone screen. I have always encouraged my daughter to play outside and make new friends and play new games with them. But due to the quarantine period, you can still exercise in your house while making it a fun-time activity.
Why Exercise With Kids?
Just like breathing and eating, I believe exercise should be a part of the daily routine. As a parent, we should always motivate them to be a part of any activity which involves some physical strength. Exercising on a mundane basis helps them to make them stronger and they will be able to give extra attention to their body. If your child is a teenager, then you should definitely do this activity as their hormones are evolving and exercise will assist to strengthen their body and mind.
Material Required for the Exercise With Kids
You don’t need a lot of material with this activity. You just need an exercising mat, a music system (if required) and access to YouTube video. Just type ‘Easy exercises with Kids’ and you can choose any video and imitate their steps.
How to do “Exercise With Kids”
Exercising with Kids doesn’t require a lot of effort but there might be a possibility that you need to push them a bit to exercise. Some kids don’t want to exercise, but if you are going to put their favorite song on speaker and do it with other family members, then I am sure they will not be able to resist it.
Here are some of the key learning that I have discovered while exercising with my daughter:
- Exercising not only develops their physical strength but also makes a positive impact on mental health as well.
- It gives the right direction to spend their energy during this lockdown period.
My Overall Experience
Honestly, I had a great experience with this activity. I have played my daughter’s favourite playlist and other family members have participated in this activity too.
So, try out this activity with your kids too and don’t forget to share the experience in the comment section below. If possible, you can also share the pictures while working out or exercising with your kids and tag me, @sneha_261013 on Instagram.
