What do your kids do for exercise? Being that it is obvious our schools don't provide much in way of Physical Education, it is important.kids get out there and move.

I am so blessed to live near Waikiki Beach, Kapiolani Park, the Hononolu Zoo and many other areas we can enjoy outdoors all year round. My husband and 9yo daughter surfs when the waves are up. We go on family bike rides, walk to the park to play and we have a family membership at thw YMCA. We are pretty active.

We play outside but don't do any classes or anything structured. We have a pool so we are swimming all summer.

They are out for sports and I don't let them sit around the house playing video games or watch tv.  When weather is nice, they ride their bikes.

My 9yo plays baseball, soccer and basketball plus he's in jui jitsu and karate. He also golfs and plays tennis, but only for fun. If he could have practice every day, he'd be thrilled. Activity is not an issue for him!

We are in pacific northwest so winter time is yucky weather time.  We try to go to stores just to walk around in a dry place.  DD is 6 so she has outgrown most of the play areas here that are indoors.

Were thinking about karate for my 6yo.

Our elementery school has gym class 3 days a week and outside recess. Outside of school my kids are on a wrestling team, football and dance. When it is summer we are at the lake boating, swimming, canoeing, and fishing.

My daughter is on a dance company and dances about 15 hours a week AND has PE every day.  My son's play club basketball and football and so are at practice about 10 hours a week plus games.  They have recess twice a day and have PE 3 times a week.
