There are many out side games to play with children and you could probably find books at the library. How about swimming, bike riding, or flying a kite. When was the last time you flew a kite?

I love hearing creative ideas for getting my 2- and 4-year olds to exercise. I know exercise just sort of happens naturally at that age, but I am the mom - and I need to set up the situation. One of my favorite low-tech things to do is to go to our neighborhood park/athletic field and let the kids play like crazy on the soccer and baseball fields. It's ideal - large fields where they can just flat-out run for long distances. They particularly LOVE to run around the bases as quickly as they can. Bonus: I can get some exercise in too. I admit I don't always run the full baseline with them, but I can run smaller laps within the baselines to keep up with them!
WARNING: Depending on the age/weight of your children, don't let them play around soccer goal nets. These huge metal frames can tip over if a lot of weight is put in them. I know some older kids like to jump up and hang off the crossbar. Obviously this can cause serious injury - there are a number of these incidents reported every year. So...probably best to just not let them play in the goal area. Just a tip...

Have fun!!

I got a new game for my DS to try. It just came!! I am so excited to see how much my DS (with gross motor delay) will ride it!!! Granted it was a little pricey. I thought it would cost more than it did though. It is called a Smart Cycle and it is a pedalling game (like a stationary bike) with video. It is by Fisher Price and has educational games to plug into it. It does come with one. I think I am as excited as he is!!! emoticon
