3 Ways to Keep Kids Active This Winter from The Little Gym

The following post was provided by guest blogger and owner of The Little Gym of Pearland, Kevin Berry.

Colder temperatures and shorter days offer fewer hours of sunlight for kids to run and play outside. But the need for regular physical activity isn’t seasonal. It’s important to make it a priority all year long! Here are 3 ways to keep your children active during the chilly winter months:

  1. Create an indoor obstacle course using cardboard boxes and let your children decorate and crawl through them
  2. Balloon toss! Blow up a balloon and see how long the kids can keep it up in the air without touching the ground
  3. Put on your favorite The Little Gym tunes, get up, and dance!

The Little Gym is another great option for busy families! At The Little Gym of Pearland, our age appropriate games and activities encourage children to reach their greatest potential all while making new friends and having Serious Fun! Follow the links to learn more about classes and Winter Camps!

  1. Great ideas! Thanks for sharing! My boys are so busy and active!!!

  2. The obstacle course is a must! I will be sure to incorporate that activity into our schedule this winter.

  3. Great ideas. Baby number two will be here in February and my son will be a year and a half so I’m getting a little anxious just thinking about having a toddler and a newborn in the dead of winter. I will have to try these and incorporate the ideas.

    1. Congratulations!!

  4. Great ideas! My little guy loves crawling and climbing under and over everything, so I know he would love an indoor obstacle course.
