Health Tip: Make Exercise Fun

(HealthDay News) - Getting young children to exercise is easier if you keep it entertaining, fun and interesting.

The Nemours Foundations offers these suggestions to make exercise more enjoyable:
  • Keep your child busy by asking her to hunt for things such as animals, items of a certain color, or objects of a certain shape.
  • Sing while you walk or exercise, or say a nursery rhyme or tell a story together.
  • Don't just walk -- skip, hop, jump, race and walk backwards.
  • Encourage your child to learn while exercising. Have her count how many things she sees, and identify shapes and colors.
