When it’s cold and rainy, or gray and dreary, it’s hard to get little ones outside to jump, run and climb like they need to. I’ve found that during rainy weeks, and winter months, it’s pretty easy to get some preschool exercise time indoors to help expel built up energy!
There are myriads of games and activities you can create inside to get your toddlers up and moving. But if you’re lacking energy yourself, there is a pretty simple way to lead your preschooler in some exercise time without having to do much planning or preparation:
After lunch, and before nap on yucky days, I set up the laptop in the living room and announce that it’s “Exercise Time”! That brings my kids running! We have discovered a few YouTube favorites that my kids love to sing and dance with!
