FOR THE KIDDOS:
The Centers for Disease Control recommends that children get at least 60 minutes of physical activity each day, in which the activity ranges from moderate to intense.
Connecting and bonding with our children is a huge part of positive parenting, and each of us strives to do our best. At times when going outside isn`t the most desirable, parents are frantic trying to find fun things for our little ones to do while indoors. What better way to have some silly fun other than dancing and letting loose?
Kids are naturally rhythmic and love to express themselves, break out the tunes and follow their lead.
Got a gaming console? Check out Just Dance the series to get a bunch of fun dances to move to. This can be fun for kids of ALL AGES, even if they don’t earn five stars on Rihanna`s Umbrella.
Plus, with there being 8+ different discs to choose from, talk about variety!
MIX IT UP – Wave things like scarves and blankets around for more fun! Have musical instruments ? Incorporate them as well!
What about me, you ask? Being a stay-at-home mom I know how important it is to move around, I`m not letting my precious body go to waste!
MIX IT UP – Grab some dumbbells or any two objects for weights. While holding objects as your moving to the beat, think of all the muscles your working.
YOU + KIDDO(S) + DANCING= SIMPLE ARM WORKOUT
*Your bat wings will thank you!
