Exercises that Don’t Feel Like Exercise for Children

Physical exercising is healthy for any age even our children. Because they are naturally active, children may not need constant prodding about doing exercise routines. When your children are also attending our Childcare Center in Irvine, California, we have different programs that will encourage them to stay active.

Yet, if you want to encourage them to exercise, we have recommended routines for you. What’s exciting about this set is that children feel like they’re just playing. As a result, they can exercise while having fun. Enjoy these routines together!

  • Frog LeapingStart with a frog-like position. Both arms are stretched and touching the floor while the legs are bent. In this position, perform a frog leap. Repeat five times. Before sending your child to our weekend daycare in Irvine, try getting them to do this activity as a game. It’s a good warm-up for an active day ahead.
  • Jumping JacksBegin with a standing position – feet apart, both arms stretched upward. Start jumping while alternating both feet’s positions from together and apart. At the same time, clap the outstretched hands when the legs are apart. Repeat at least ten times.
  • Elephant WalkLet your child walk as though in a marching position. However, get the children to raise their knees higher like the way elephants walk. Repeat this five times.

Just like what we do in our center for Day Care in Irvine, these activities can improve a child’s physical activeness. We hope you can try these at home. If you have, do let us know how your experience was.
