Get Moving! Springtime Activities for the Kids

Posted by | Active Toddlers, Blog, Child, Fun and Games, Play Time, Toddler | No Comments

Spring is almost here, which means we get to play outside again. My seven-year-old is in dance, so I don’t worry about her getting enough physical activity, but my four-year-old tries to turn into a couch potato in the winter months. Thankfully, my husband is all about fitness (I’m trying) so we make physical activity a family affair. Here’s a list of our favorite physical activities, both indoor and outdoor:

  1. Bike riding
  2. Dance party (Always indoors because I dance like a newborn giraffe)
  3. Jumping on the trampoline
  4. Roller skating in the garage
  5. Walking around the neighborhood
  6. Indoor basketball (This is a cool trick to make your kids help with laundry)
  7. Scavenger hunt (Indoor or outdoor)
  8. “Hide & Seek”
  9. “Red Light, Green Light” w/ music (Indoor or outdoor)
  10. Clean house obstacle course (This is my personal favorite)

Catch Me If You Can!

Sometimes it’s hard to find time to play, so make a everything a game with your child.  Turn off the TV and play follow-the-leader, tag, or just dance to some fun music! Five minutes will quickly turn to ten minutes or more of memories and fun.
