The problem is that if you tell your children that you are going to do some exercise then your children will be uninterested and will not want to do it. However if you can make the activity fun so they do not know they are doing exercise and there are many ways that you can help your children doing exercise. Summer is one of the easiest times for you to get your children up and out you have just got to be creative.
You can take your children out for a bike ride and at different points you can have mini races as this will be fun for everyone but remember it is not about winning with your children it is about them having fun. Another idea when you are on the bikes is to play a spotting game. This works by when you are cycling you have to name something for your children to spot. For example find something beginning with "G" then one child says "Grass" so you then search for beginning with "S". This game can go on for a long time and once it is over you will be able to have a peaceful night when your children are tired and want to go bed.
You do not have to make your children sporty but my getting objects for your garden you can help them stay fit by themselves. A trampoline would be great for this because your children will love playing on them and because they are normally hard wearing you will be able to use them for a long time.
If you do not want to buy a trampoline you can then hire out a bouncy castle for the day. Children always love playing on these and because they are so cheap you will be able to have hours of fun on something where they will not be able to injure themselves. Another simple piece of equipment you can use is a football and some goalposts as most children love football so by giving them equipment to have their own game they can create their own fun.
If you do not have a big garden you may be thinking that you can just disregard this information however there is still a lot that you can do. Your local park will provide a lot of equipment for your children to go mental on it and they will love it but as well as this you may even have some fun. If the weather's bad this does not have to stop you because you can still take your children to have fun. You can do this at your local indoor play centre as these provide a huge range of equipment for your children to play on and because they are so cheap anyone can afford to go.
The equipment that is at these centres is regularly tested so you can be assured that your children are safe then if you do like them you can even hire them out as most of these centres offer the facilities for you to have a party there. It will definitely be a party that your children will not forget.
Keeping your children fit and healthy through their early life is probably the most important thing that you can do as a parent. This is because once they have developed the habit of taking part in activities while they are young they will continue to do so whilst they grow up and this can prevent conditions like heart disease and diabetes so it is definitely worth it.
