Healthy Heart Activity Ideas
Indoor Activities for Heart Healthy fun with Kids
2. ARM CIRCLES
3. DON’T SIT ON THE HEART (aka chair squats)
Really, do NOT sit on the hearts. My 3 year old cracks up in a fit of giggles, of course, soon as I get the camera out he gets all serious on me. I of course got a few more squats in then he did, but Oh SO MUCH FUN! We counted how many times we could almost sit down. (Exercise + Math)
4. KISS THE BABY
Now this is my favorite arm exercise of all time. Kiss the baby is when you lift your little ones up and gently lower them to your chest for a kiss. This looks all cute and sweet like this, but I promise you seconds after we took this picture I was bench pressing the big kid. Lots more work for the arm muscles! (and yes, more giggles) (Exercise + Snuggles)
5. JUMP THE HEART
Last and not least, we played jump the heart. For 2 minutes we jumped over the heart.
- With one leg
- With two legs
- and Crazy Jumping
I’d call out how to jump and we would both do attempt to do it. Let me tell you, this one gets you sweaty! (Exercise + Following Directions)
