Fun Holiday Exercise Tips

Just because you're home for the holidays, it doesn't mean you have to spend the whole time watching television or playing video games (although, Kidzworld recommends setting aside plenty of time to do both those things). It's also important that you spend some time exercising, especially since you'll probably be eating a lot of junk food. Check out these ideas for staying in shape over the holidays.

Holiday Exercise Tips - Test Your New Gear

Try out the skateboard or snowboard that Santa gave you - or round up some of your peeps and play a game using your new football or basketball. Who cares if it's snowing outside? It's always more satisfying to tackle someone when there's snow on the ground.

Holiday Exercise Tips - Build a Snowman

You're never too old to build a snowman and it can be a fun way of keeping active over the holidays. Be creative and dress your snow creature up as your most-hated teacher, and then throw snowballs at it.

Holiday Exercise Tips - Help Out Around the House

Kidzworld hates chores and other mindless tasks as much as you do - but it wouldn't kill you to help your parents with the housework over the holidays (unless helping involves removing asbestos from the ceiling or feeding dangerous snakes - those things could kill you). Doing a few extra chores is a good way to stay in shape and will give you some bargaining power when you ask for a January 1st allowance increase.

Holiday Exercise Tips - Have a Snowball Fight

What's more fun than plastering your friends with snowballs? It's also a great way to work off all those cookies and chocolates you've probably been eating over the holidays. Remember, it's all fun and games until someone loses an eye - so don't pack those snowballs too hard - and no head-shots.

Boys CAN cheerlead, but chances are they will be made fun of(not by me). Cheerleaders do A LOT of physical cheers and stunts, and we use ourselves instead of gear. A lot and most people underestimate cheerleaders for just some girls with poms and uniforms going "go team! yay!" because they have seen that in movies and tv. look up some cheer comp videos and still only some people with change their view of cheerleaders as girls on the sidelines doing uncreative cheers and stupid words to match. I hope this helped you understand a little bit more about cheerleading and cheerleaders. Peace Out!
