Exercise Jar for Kids

My boys both just began basketball, and have gym classes at co-op, but we are still stuck inside most days due to extreme cold temperatures.  I decided to add some exercise to the daily agenda and workboxes by making an Exercise Jar.

I picked exercises that kids can do with very little help.  If they didn't know how to do an exercise, we watched a quick video when I explained the jar (below). If your child is really struggling with one of these exercises, just take it out of the jar.



After each boy finishes his free typing lessons, they must pick 3 exercise from the Exercise Jar. What better time than after sitting at a computer?!  It's a good lesson for all of us in this modern computer age. It isn't a full workout, but keep them moving a little more during the day.

Younger children can pick one exercise a day, if 3 is too many.  Older kids can pick up 5 a day. To keep in shape, maybe you as a mom can pick a few to do with your kids!
