You know what happens when it gets cold–you can’t send the kids outside to run off their energy. Then it’s up to you to provide opportunity for them to get active. This semester, we’ve begged off outside gym classes and are mixing it up with our new Wii. The kids love Wii Fit–skiing, hula-hooping, heading soccer balls. They also dig Wii Sports–boxing, golfing, bowling.
Another fun way to get the jitterbugs out is what we call Family Dance Night. Hubby and I sit on the couch like lumps and switch between music genres on our cable music channels. Sitting–not healthy. Watching our kids fall into bed exhausted–priceless.
The boys add a little funk to the night with TMNT costumes. What good, clean fun!
