5 ways to get the kids moving indoors on a cold day

Posted: Updated:

With today being one of the coldest days in history in Minnesota with schools canceled, that means a lot of kids are at home, itching to get moving and their parents are just as anxious for them to burn off energy.

Fox 9 Fitness Expert Ali Holman from CoreCamper.com stopped by to show us some fun ways to get your kids moving on this cold day.

1. Floor skating: Give your kids some towel scraps and have some races across the floor! This not only works on core strength, but will also wear them out!

2. Timed challenge: Pick a simple exercise and time your child for 60 seconds, counting reps. See if they can beat their original rep count for the ultimate personal competition!

3. Popcorn pushups: Everyone loves popcorn, right? Have your kids eat popcorn creatively, grabbing a piece in their mouth as they lower into a pushup.

4. Boat toss: Using an inflatable ball, toss the ball back and forth over an "island" as you both are in the boat position.

5. Cold day flash cards: Create flash cards with various exercises printed on them.
