Exercise Crafts and Activities Round Up

Round up of healthy exercise activities for preschoolers

We’ve rounded up a collection of crafts and activities that you can use to warm up young people to think of exercise as fun as well as healthy. Exercise comes in all forms and warm up exercises are an important component. Children and adults look at these as recreation but they are also exercises.  Check out a website called Live Youth Strong that has a blueprint for individuals or groups geared to different ages working together or independently as they explore warm up exercise choices and many other topics.

Youth Strong has a program to help kids and their friends to explore new things. Your little ones can earn an Exercise Helper Patch that they can proudly display on a tote or hat.  Getting involved in the program can be a one time activity or a longer commitment to a cause that you and your family or organization feel dedicated to.
