Having Fun Exercising with Your Toddler

Posted on 01-15-2016

This is the time of year that people everywhere are planning to eat better, exercise, and lose weight. Although the plans are sincere, parents with a toddler can find it challenging to exercise and watch their busy toddler at the same time.

Instead of looking for exercise time away from your toddler, consider exercising at home and including your toddler. Before you start, grab an exercise mat for yourself and your child. Give yourself plenty of room to move around without getting too close to your toddler. Also grab your child’s favorite movie to watch if the exercise becomes boring to them.

Since children love music and instruments, always include music in your exercise routine. Give your child an instrument or item to hit and make noise. Making music becomes your child’s exercise routine! During the exercise, count out loud, sing, and have fun interaction with your toddler. Your child will learn about numbers and you may exercise longer. Your child may want to do some exercises with you. Let her enjoy moving from side to side, touching her toes, or simply moving around in any way she chooses. If you decide to walk for exercise, take the stroller and walk briskly while your child enjoys the ride.

Exercise is healthy for parents and toddlers, especially when you enjoy the time together. Learning the value of exercise from a parent’s demonstration will have lasting benefits for your toddler. At Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy of Spring on Kuykendahl, we know how to make learning fun! With us, children learn outdoors, indoors, through technology, music, dancing, songs, and engaging instruction. That’s just one of the many reasons we are so much more than a daycare or childcare.

We invite you to review our programs and contact us for a tour to learn more about ways we make learning fun at Kids ‘R’ Kids of Spring on Kuykendahl.
