jump rope or hopscotch. I think variety. Go to a trail to ride bikes or walk - change the scenery

In addition to riding my bike, I remember loving roller-skating when I was 7. Some other ideas include going to a park and kicking a soccer ball around, swinging, playing basketball, planting and tending a garden together (not necessarily an "exercise" but a physical activity), doing yoga together (there are some yoga DVDs geared toward children), hula-hooping, jumping rope, horseback riding, ... I also remember loving tap dancing and ballet classes and had lots of friends who enjoyed gymnastics (although I was never any good).

Hello,

You will want to take her to her pediatrician and discuss her needs with him/her. Only a medical professional familiar with your child's history can best advise exercise that may be safe for her to begin.

It's great that you and your daughter are implementing healthier habits together. Have fun reaching your goals.

Be well,
Kelly
