Fun Holiday Exercise Tips

Having a snowball fight with your friends is a great way to exercise over the holidays!
Snowball Fight

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.

    Do you have an old tire you could start off practicing with? It helps you align your hands. I find it kind of hard to explain, but there are lots of great resources out there online if you search for them. :) To do a cartwheel stand in a lunge with your favourite leg (by that I don't mean you look at it and say "that's a nice leg" but that you favor that leg when doing things, you feel comfortable with it going first), knees bent slightly, and your arms straight up by your ears. Make sure your elbows are locked. You don't want to drop. Assuming you start with your right, reach forward with your right arm while kicking your left leg up at the same time. Your left hand should follow very quickly and as it touches the ground your right leg should also be off of the ground. You should pass through the handstand briefly and your left leg should reach the ground first with your right following it and you will finish in a lunge just as you started. Hand, hand, foot, foot. 1,2,3,4. There's a rhythm to it. Keep practicing and try to perfect not kicking around as you go.

    Well I'm in 6th grade this year and next year in seventh grade I'm going to try out for cheerleading... The problem is I cant do a cartwheel or any of that! So I have to cram all of this stuff into just one year, all help is appreciated.
