Family Matters: 10 Ways Kids Can Play All by Themselves
Friday, July 27, 2012
Take a bike ride. Or roller skate, scooter, or skateboard. (Don’t forget your helmet and pads!)
Jump rope and count how many times you can jump before you miss.
Play tennis? Try hitting a tennis ball against a brick wall.
Like basketball? Try shooting hoops and seeing how many you can sink.
Improve your soccer skills. Grab a ball, and see how long you can keep it in the air using your feet, knees, and head.
Practice hopscotch. See how long you can hop on one foot.
Do jumping jacks.
Invent some dance moves.
Hula hoop. See how long you can move the hoop before it falls to ground. Try to swing more than one hoop at a time.
Do sprints (short running races) and time yourself to see how fast you go. Use a pedometer to count the number of steps between your favorite places, like your house and the park.
