Be it any kind of exercising, the idea is to make it some fun. And if you have kids at home, then you can easily include them in your exercise regime too. Be it a toddler, teen or even a tween, there is nothing like including them in your exercise routine to help them get some exercise too. Also, when you are keeping them busy with you, there’s less of a hassle for you too, especially mothers with toddlers who are running all over the place.
So Here Are Some Fun Home Exercises That You Can Do With Your Kids:
Run Up And Down Stairs
If you have a grown up kid or even toddler, then how about asking them to run up and down the stairs. If you don’t want to exert them, they can help you time the number of times you are going up and down. This easy exercise can be done inside the house, even on days when it is raining or very hot outside. And the best part is that it keeps your kid busy too.
If you are trying to get a trimmer waistline then nothing beats the fun out of doing hula exercises at home. And here you can also teach your kid to get involved in the exercise regime or you can use their hula hoop for your workout. It can be done in the garden, terrace or almost anywhere else. Hula hoops are something both kids and adults enjoy and of course, you can do a complete body workout using these.
Skipping is so much fun and if you have kids accompanying you, then it adds to the fun. You can have a parent and kid competition seeing who does the maximum jumps or even something like how fast can both of you go. Sure a lot of fun and involves the kid, keeping them busy.
Leg Rising Or Sit Ups
If you have a little one then you can ask them to stand on your feet or use them as additional weights when doing either of these stomach exercises. Since most adults have problems keeping their feet steady on the ground, your kid standing on the feet helps you get that added pressure and intensifies the workout too.
If you have a small trampoline in the house then it is perfect for the both of you. Get on top of that trampoline and start jumping. Here both you and your kid are able to get a good workout and also make the activity a lot of fun, without leaving the comfort of your home.

Mountain climbers are a lot of fun for both kids and parents. Mountain climbers is basically getting into a plank position.
