Book Review: 303 Kid-Approved Exercises and Active Games By Kimberly Wechsler

303 KID-APPROVED EXERCISES AND ACTIVE GAMES
Ages: 6-8

Non-Fiction

Kids are spending way too much time indoors, sitting in chairs watching movies and playing video games.  Kimberly Weschsler has come up with various exercises and games that will get your kids moving. There are stretches and exercises that you can do with your child in your own home.  She has included ways to motivate them and keep them having fun.  Even having them do their chores while walking backwards, or making laundry a game by shooting their clothes into the baskets all encourage activity and fun while doing regular chores.

In fact, all of the exercises in this book will not only benefit the kids but the adults as well.  There are plenty of basic exercises and stretches that you can incorporate into your daily routines.  Some of them even require you to do them as partners like the Towel Tug of War.

Besides focusing on fitness and exercise for individuals, there are several group activities that encourage kids to be active.  This was the part of the book I was most interested in because I run an after school program for kids and we are always looking for ways to keep them active and busy.  One of my favorites was one I had forgotten about, the Back-to-Back race.  Several of these would also be great for family reunions or summer camps. There are also ideas for making your own obstacle courses which are perfect for the summer months.

If you are looking for fun, new ideas for getting your kids moving both indoors and out, check out this book and be ready to get active with your kids!

Looks like an innovative book about exercise. It's true that kids like to have fun and not feel like they are exercising, much like adults, I guess.:-)
