5 Fun Ways to Keep Your Family Fit

4. Sing and Dance While You Clean

Set aside time for household chores and do them together as a family. Play music as you clean, and take turns choosing favorite songs. Younger children love to help out and can pick up toys or sweep floors while dancing with the broom. Older kids can dust, vacuum, and help make beds.

5. Make Yard Work Less of a Chore for More Family Exercise

Enjoy seasonal yard work together. Younger children can help plant and tend a garden. Older kids can rake leaves into a pile -- and then jump in it. Make snow shoveling fun for all by building a snow fort or creating a family of snow people.
