Did you know that you may have never tried any of them for fitness alone? Here are the top 5 kid’s activities you’ve never tried, well maybe not as an adult and definitely not for fitness.

Flag Tag

Keep your Flag to win to play, you need one flag for each player.

Leap Frog

A croaking classic! This game is for multiple players. Players form two teams and line up. The first player in each line gets down on his hands and knees and puts his head down. Then, the second player in line jumps over him by lightly placing their hands on his back and jumping with their legs out to the sides.

Then, they gets down on her hands and knees in front of him. The third player now leaps over both players on the ground, one at a time. Players keep going like this. The first team to reach the finish line wins!

Here is another game if your still feeling a little crabby. This game is for four or more players and should be played outside or in an open area. To play this game, you need a big, squishy ball, and something to mark goals.
