Children are the future, and it’s up to us to make sure they’re healthy. We know that toddlers need at least 60 minutes of exercise a day in order to grow properly and stay healthy, but what about the rest of us? How much should you be pushing your kids to play outside? I’m here to tell you that it doesn’t matter how old your child is: if they’re active and outdoorsy, then they’ll be healthier than people who spend all day indoors—even if they spend most of their time playing video games or watching TV!

Ball play

Ball play is a great way to keep your child active, as well as develop hand-eye coordination. It can also be used for sports or just for fun. Ball play can be done indoors or outdoors, depending on the weather.

Ball Play Exercises:

  • Start with a basic ball toss by tossing a ball back and forth between you and another player until it becomes easy for both of you to catch it without dropping it. This will help strengthen the kids arms and shoulders while building confidence in catching balls that come at unexpected angles when thrown by other people.


Skipping is a great exercise for kids and adults alike. It’s easy to do, doesn’t require any equipment, and can be done anywhere at any time.

  • Skipping is good for the heart because it helps keep blood pressure down and reduces stress on the circulatory system.
  • Skipping is good for the lungs because it improves lung capacity and strengthens muscles in your chest cavity (the diaphragm).
  • Skipping is good for bone growth as well—when you jump up high enough that gravity pulls your legs back toward their starting position before landing again on the ground after several steps backwards (or forwards), this stresses the muscles that support those bones under strain due to increased gravitational force pulling downwards onto them from above during each jump


Running is a great way to get your heart rate up and to burn calories. It’s also great for the lungs, muscles, bones and joints. Not only that but it can be helpful in building self-esteem by giving you an opportunity to enjoy yourself while doing something good for your body!

Running also helps with weight management because it increases metabolism which results in burning more calories than if you were at rest or doing nothing at all (but don’t forget to eat healthy!). This means that running will help keep your weight down even if you’re not trying too hard (although I recommend jogging instead of walking).

Testing balance

You can test your kids balance by making them stand on one leg, walking on a balance beam or rolling ball. The best way to learn to walk on a slackline is by practicing at home with friends and family members who are also learning how to walk on the line.

Children should get 60 minutes of exercise a day. This is the recommended amount, and it’s important to set aside at least that much time for physical activity each day.

There are many ways to incorporate exercise into your child‘s routine, whether it’s playing sports or gardening with them. The key here is that any activity—no matter how small—counts! It doesn’t matter if they’re just walking around their block; as long as they get some movement in their bodies, you know they’re getting some valuable health benefits!
