What are some exercises you do that you can also do with your young child ?

I am learning yoga but my son has no attention span to say in one position long. He does it and then say "mom I got you did it first " . I am looking for things that I can have him do to keep his interest and my nephew too. My son is 2year going 3 and my nephew is 5 years old.

  • My 5 yo likes going for walks with me. He also likes doing areobics with me, trying to at least. We do jumping jacks together and also jump rope.

  • For me it is hard to choose something to do that my daughter can participate in. She just turned 4 and she does like to try to do yoga and other kinds of exercise but if I am on my treadmill I will put her in the sun room with me and have her color pictures or watch a program or something. A lot of times, I will just wait until she is sleeping to exercise because it makes it a lot easier and more time spent actually doing what I am supposed to instead of worrying about her. Good luck, I hope you are able to find something.
