What i like to do is exercise with my kids at school, that way we can all be more active. Whether it's playing games after circle, or doing different exercise moves with Elmo Says during circle time, it gets them up as well as myself!
As a stay-at-home-mom I find it hard to get in my daily exercise because the kids are always under my feet and in the way. To make it work, I put in a fun aerobics DVD and tell my toddlers we are playing a game. They dance and do the exercises with me. This also helps with getting them to nap.
