1. Commercial Break
If you’re going to watch TV, make a game out of commercial breaks. Have the kids walk around the room and touch three things that are green. Whoever finds three items first gets to choose the next color.
2. Good Old-Fashioned Follow the Leader
Play outside! What a novel idea. Have the kids put down their cell phones, tablets and video games and start a game of hide and seek or duck, duck, goose! They are oldies, but they’re still goodies!
3. Tiny Bubbles
Summer fun in the backyard with a bubble-blower. Blow some bubbles and have some giggles watching the kids try and pop them all.
4. 80s Flashback
The 80s are remembered for legwarmers and the oh-so stylish mullet hair. But let’s not forget the tunes! Turn up the 80s radio station and dance, dance, dance (like a ‘maniac’) with your kids.
5. Your Furriest Child
The dog shouldn’t be left out of the exercise fun. After all, dogs LIKE to go on walks. Make it a family routine to walk the pup after dinner.
