It’s time to get the kids moving and exercising! These activities can be done indoors our outdoors. They’re perfect for an Easter party, playdate, beautiful Spring day or any day after the kids come home from school!
What I love most about these activities is the fun way it encourages children to exercise and get their wiggles out. Just a few thrifty supplies and your kids will thank you for making their exercise experience more fun than ever!
I decided on these adorable plastic carrot eggs from the dollar store. You can use any plastic egg you’d like for this activity, just make sure they’re easy to open and close for little hands.
Step#1: Cut off the lid of an empty egg carton. Any type of egg carton will work for this activity. I then used a sharpie marker to write numbers 1-12 on the bottom of the egg carton slots. I decided to mix up the numbers for more mystery in the game!
Step #3: Cut the exercise activities into strips and fold them in half.
Step #5: Place one activity into each plastic carrot egg. Put all carrots into a slot in the empty egg carton.
Tip: I used all exercise strips and placed 2 options in some of the eggs. I told my kids those were the “super booster eggs” since they can choose to do one of the exercises or be super strong and do both. They loved the challenge!
How to Play:
Tip: Don’t forget to do the exercise as many times as the number says on the bottom of the egg carton slot.
This exercise activity kept my kids busy and active for about an hour! It was fun to hear their laughter and how they challenged one another. I hope you and the children in your life enjoy these Spring Exercise Activities for Kids!
