ABC Fitness Activities for Kids

ABCs fitness activities stickerKids need physical fitness incorporated into their everyday activities. I recently saw an idea to come up with a physical activity for each letter of the alphabet. For older kids, it might be fun to have them help you come up with ideas. Then when you need a quick break or an activity idea, look to your list and start checking them off. Soon you’ll have completed 26 + different physical activities! Here are some ideas to get you started:
