Fun Fitness Ideas for Kids

 It is no great secret that it can often be somewhat challenging to get your kids to exercise, especially when your outside activity time is limited. 

There are many fun ways to get kids excited about exercise however, so you may wish to consider some exciting activities in order to create a positive and happy atmosphere. 

Exercise does not have to be a word that produces groans and moans every time the idea is uttered, so here are some tips for those of you looking to help your kids stay fit and healthy while having fun. 

A Treasure Hunt

Especially exciting for the little ones, a treasure hunt can bring all sorts of benefits to the table, including physical exercise as well as a cognitive workout. 

You may wish to consider crafting a narrative for your kids to explore with clues and questions, resulting in a reward for making it to the end. 

A good treasure hunt can keep you occupied for hours on end, even if it happens to be exercise in disguise. 


Soccer can be fun and extremely good for your cardio and stamina. It also requires just a ball and a garden initially. 

You may even wish to consider the fantastic youth soccer services available at if you were looking for an exciting new avenue for your child to explore. 

Perhaps you will discover you have a child prodigy in the making!

Get Involved

It can be important to show your children that you exercise too, in order to present to them a role model. You can do this by taking part in the same activities as your kids and staying positive to promote the benefits of regular exercise. 

Start Dancing

Dancing is not only fun, but it can provide a great outlet for physical exercise. It does not have to take the form of a rigid dance workout either, you can make it fun by playing their favorite songs and turn it into a party! 

Furthermore, you can dance from the comfort of your own home, without the need to feel embarrassed or pressured to master your moves. Dancing can also be therapeutic, especially after a long and tense day, so shaking out those negative feelings can work wonders towards creating a bright and enjoyable home atmosphere. 

A Game of Tag

If you are feeling particularly energized, why not indulge in a game of tag with the whole family? This way you can get everyone involved with the excitement. It can also offer you that sublime feeling of nostalgia as you embody your old school yard days. 

Jump Rope

Loved by children and professional boxers the world over, jump rope is great for staying fit and healthy. 

Why not start a competition to see who can do the most jumps in one minute? 

Offer an Incentive

By turning your exercise activities into competitions, you can offer rewards as incentives to commit to the task. 

This can be something as small as choosing which show to watch afterwards, but it can make all the difference.

Toddler Rainbow Craft for St. Patricks Day

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly.  I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos.  Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you.   This was a super easy one for those little hands.  I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting.  The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper.  EASY, but they enjoyed it!  :)  It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge!  :)   I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!  

Harlem Globetrotters- A night of Fun! Save 20%

  If you only came here for the discount code then there ya go!  Save 20% at checkout with the code: USFAM!   I will admit that prices seem very costly in my opinion so hopefully this 20% off will really help you.   I was blessed to be able to promote this discount and post about my experience to get free tickets for my family.   I am not sure our budget would be able to afford the tickets... family of four and ticket prices we got were over a $100 each ticket... so it can make for a pricey night.   Then add in if you get snacks, a ball, or a jersey you could spend a hefty paycheck in one evening of fun.    With that said, my family did have a good time.   We saw good talent, we had lots of laughs, we cheered, and we enjoyed watching with each other.   Some would say the Harlem Globetrotters are like the equivalent of WWE but with basketball.   There is a storyline within the game, which helps get the crowd going and cheering.   My 11 year old had the most fun!   He was standing up and
