These simple exercises build leg strength, giving kids a good foundation for all kinds of sports and fitness activities.
Try forward, backward, and side lunges, as well as classic squats. Make it into a game by counting how many your child can do in 30-second intervals while keeping proper form.
Knees should be kept in line with feet and not bent too far.
You can incorporate jumps into a squat sequence by having kids hop every time they stand up between repetitions.
