18 Get-Off-the-Couch Games
Get your kid moving with these fun games -- he won't even realize he's getting exercise!
Games for One
Stretch and sprout
Get ready for spring with this fun stretch: Ask your child to curl up on the floor as tightly as she can, pretending to be a small seed. Have her imagine the warm sunshine, letting her body slowly unfurl and reach toward the sky. Repeat the cycle, getting faster each time until the little flower blooms so quickly that your child jumps into the air.
Dump a pile of cotton balls on the floor in your child's bedroom and place an empty bowl on the floor in another room. Set a timer for four minutes, and have your child move all the cotton balls from his room into the bowl -- using a spoon and crawling on hands and knees. The cotton balls are so light, they're likely to go flying if he isn't careful. If he makes it, challenge him to do it in three minutes!
