Game Day Thursday

Movement should be fun! The KidsFit team’s mission is to make movement fun for everyone so join us every Thursday for game day!

Games are great for practicing creativity, communication, teamwork and fine motor skills; movement is just a huge bonus! The KidsFit team will walk you through a new game each week then you can repeat with your family to continue the fun.

1. ROLL THE DICE

  • Exercise can be a lot of fun, especially with Daira's roll the dice workout! To play, simply perform the movements that are chosen by rolling the dice, including jumping jacks, ski jumps and more.

2. WHEEL OF FUN

  • Teach your kids to move their bodies in fun ways with Daira's wheel of fun workout. Just spin the wheel for six unique movements, including mountain climbers, soldier kicks, knee hugs and more!

3. SEQUENCE WORKOUT
