Put on any kind of music and kids instinctively start to bee bop around the room. Add a gaming element and fun moves to the mix and you’ve got an entertaining way for kids to get up off the couch and move. The highly popular Just Dance franchise has created a loyal following of people who love music and love to dance (rhythmic ability is not required).
Luckily, Just Dance also offers a kids version and Just Dance Kids 2 is a great video game that the whole family can play, or rather, dance together. Featuring songs from kids’ faves like Yo Gabba Gabba, The Wiggles and nursery rhyme picks, the game will appeal to little ones, as well as to older kids who want to get down to top 40 hits like “Just the Way You Are” and “Whip My Hair.” It even includes that wacky “Gummy Bear” song that became a huge YouTube sensation.
The holidays are over and some activity is a good idea after all those gingerbread men and candy canes. Get into the groove with your kids with this fun video game.
