Parent Playground #3
-Bouncing your kids up and down using your hands, arms, feet, knees and legs. Do this while standing, sitting, laying down, etc. Don’t just do it for 30 seconds. This is exercise for you and fun for your kiddo. Make it last!
-Do the above bouncing, and invent a story to go with it, like “Pizza Man”. The videographer is 5 years old.
-Let your kids “clean” with their feet or upside down with their hands as you drag them around like in this video. I’m not sure if the parent or child is getting the best exercise here, but both are having fun!
–“Skate” with towels under your feet. Give your kids towels and spray and let them help clean the floor/exercise with you.
-Put a laundry basket on a blanket, have your child climb in, and push and pull them around the house. I am surprised every time how high my heart rate goes the first minute. It’s the same with pulling them on a blanket at the beach or on a sled in the snow. Super high intensity interval training!
