9 BEST EXERCISE VIDEOS FOR KIDS from https://www.therealisticmama.com/exercise-videos-for-kids/

Is anyone else getting cabin fever this winter? Or worse yet, have kids with cabin fever?  My house seems even more full than usual when the kids are cooped up inside! Thankfully, we have found some super fun exercise videos for kids that help us use up extra energy.  These workout videos are ones my kids enjoy – they are fun, appropriate, and get them moving. These don’t require any special workout equipment either! Just clear a space in your living room, set up a laptop or connect your TV to YouTube and get going!Animal Exercises for Kids – fun, and easy enough for toddlers too!

Just Dance for Kids – 5 Little Monkeys – this is a video game that our family loves, but if you don’t want to invest in the game, this video shows one of our favorite songs! The repetition makes it a cinch for pre-school age and up.

Shake Break – confession: I think this one is ridiculous. But my kids seriously love it, and it gets them moving and active, so I can’t complain!

Mummy & Toddler Workout – you knew it was coming . . . time for Mom to get in on the fun! Perfect for your toddlers to stay entertained and active while you get some exercise in.

Kids Workout with Paul – old school and ridiculously cheesy, but it keeps us entertained while we exercise together! Better for school-age kids than toddlers.

Yoga for Kids – my daughter loves this video. I put it on for her almost everyday! She knows Mom loves yoga, so I think she feels like a “big-kid” when she gets to do this, instead of one of the “silly kid videos”.

Kids Yoga – another option for yoga, a little longer and more kid-oriented explanations.

Kids Workout Video – this video is best for my older kids, who aren’t looking for something goofy and fun, but want a “real” workout. It has background music and keeps things moving so they aren’t boring!

Just Dance Kids – Despicable Me – another option for your dancers, this is more hip-hop style but all the “moves” are very appropriate.
