One of the funnest and most simple ways to get your kids moving is through dancing. Choose a fun CD or station, clear the room of toys and other potential hazards, turn the music up and have a Dance Party! Within ten minutes or less, heart rates will rise, smiles will appear, and your kids will get out a bunch of energy.

Video Games are also a great way to get them moving. Several video game consoles have games that require full body movement and are really fun. From dancing to basketball, river rafting to obstacle courses, you can find on that you and your kids will love.

If you’re looking for something a bit more involved, why not set up Fitness Games for your kids? Design a series of Olympic events they can all compete in. Make up relay races in your living room that involve hopping and crab walking. Be creative and you’ll have a blast!
