Fun Exercise Ideas For Manitou Springs Kids

When our young family moved to Colorado we were totally stoked about the “purple mountains and azure sky” and Colorado Springs’ amazing parks and trails.   We never ran out of things to do, and most of our activities provided at least a little bit of exercise. We have fond memories of afternoon walks, bike rides , camping in all seasons, warm summer nights playing capture the flag and swimming at the neighborhood community pool.

Unfortunately, many of today’s children spend hours daily in sedentary activities. Exercise benefits our physical, mental, and emotional health. Perhaps you might enjoy participating in some of these with your son or daughter.

Fun exercise suggestions:

  • Fly a kite (It’s even more fun if you sing the song from Mary Poppins while you are doing it.)
  • Wheels: bike, skateboard, longboard, inline skates, rip stick, scooter (don’t forget a helmet!)
  • Rake the yard
  • Hula hoop 
  • Martial arts
  • Juggling
  • Hacky sack
  • Badminton
  • Weight lifting
  • Walking in the park
  • Ultimate frisbee
  • Tossing the football
  • Soccer
  • Flying remote-control airplanes in the park
  • Hopscotch
  • Jump-roping
  • Tug-of-war
  • Water fights

I am concerned about the state of children’s health in Colorado and like to share information about health issues in my blog.
