5 Activities to Make Bonding Time With Kids Healthier

Kids seem to have all the time in the world. As a parent you want that time to count as quality, meaning bonding + learning + fitness. Don’t worry, your kids will love it as long the equation doesn’t say ‘= boring’. Here are suggestions on how you can make your bonding time with kids healthier.

Walk, Run, Bike

An activity you can have with your kids is walking. The good thing about walking is it’s a simple cardio activity. And when your kids get bored, they can just run. You can also teach your kids how to ride a bike or, if they already know how, you can bike with them. But remember to fit your kids with good shoes which can support their young feet. Reebok shoes for instance, has a wide selection of kids shoes which have good cushioning and grip for active children. Some shoes have funky outsoles designs—like shapes and letters—your kids will love. What can kids learn from these activities? Balance and coordination.

Teach Them a Sport

Today, some kids learn sports through apps and gadgets. Put away the gadgets and teach those sports the old school way— physically learning it— and not analyzing a computerized Kevin Durant’s moves. Basketball, for example, is a great sport to teach. Get them excited by teaching them how to dribble, pass and shoot. Football is another great sport your kids can enjoy. What can kids learn from sports? Besides coordination and balance, they can learn discipline. When they start playing with other they will learn teamwork and sportsmanship.

Kite-flying

Kite flying has been a lost activity since gadgets became popular. But it’s a fun activity for parents and kids. You can make a kite and teach your kids to fly it, then let them fly without your help. What can kids learn? Well, they can learn to be more methodical as they create the kite and as they fly it, because they should be aware of the wind and directions. Control is also a lesson they can learn.

Walk or Play With the Dog

Kids love pets. And pets seem to love kids too, despite kids losing their minds when the pets are ‘so fluffy’. So bring a long your kids when you walk the dog. What can your kids learn from this? A sense of responsibility for taking care of their pet. Empathy too, if you teach them that dogs to feel pain (despite being fluffy) when they play with them too hard. By the way, you can play fetch too. It’s good cardio for your kids… as well as Fido.

Beach activities

What’s more fun and shouts of active than going to the beach? You and your kids can swim, build sand castles (and smash them when your kids pretend to be dinosaurs), run and play all sorts of beach games. While you can’t bring your kid’s trusty Reebok shoes on the beach to protect their feet, you can fit them with aqua shoes or slippers. Speedo is a preferred brand when it comes to beach or pool related wear. The brand caters to kids too. What can kids learn from beach activities? In swimming, confidence in themselves that they won’t sink. They can learn coordination as well. Throw in information about taking care of the marine life and nature.

The great part about trying all these suggestions out is you not only get to bond with your kids and make them healthier, but keep yourself in shape too.
