Kids need exercise! Today's kids are getting fat! You've heard people screaming about it everywhere, but do they have to come up with safe, easy ways for children to get their hearts pumping and muscles working? Clearly not, or they wouldn't be making us moms feel so guilty for supposedly raising a generation of couch potatoes. We're here to help your brood the old-fashioned way: with games so fun -- and simple -- you'll all forget they're good for you, too.
Games for the Family
