8 Ways to Get Your Kids Fit
5. Sneak in exercise.
Ask your child to perform chores that require physical activity but that are still fun. For example, washing a car, gardening, or raking leaves will get their hearts pumping. Keep it fun by having a water fight after cleaning the car or having a race to see who can make the biggest heap of leaves. Then jump in the winning pile. Though the chore may end up taking twice as long to complete, the results will be worth it.
