At Home Activity Calendar

This is a terrific 'free' site with a plethora of short 'brain break' activity videos developed for kids.

Virtual Running or Walking Videos

This is one site dedicated to running within the state of Arizona.  These are terrific to view while running on a treadmill, or jogging in place on a small trampoline or on the floor.  Also, if you search YouTube, you will find a large number of videos from other areas of the country and the world.

 

Jump It app

This is a jump rope app which provides quite a few different techniques both for individual ropes and long ropes.  You can easily find this at the Apple App Store.

 

Smiling Mind app

This is a terrific app, particularly for families interested in exploring ‘mindfulness’ and quiet meditative, peaceful activities.  I encourage you to sign up and explore either as an entire group, or as individuals.  

 

Contraction Grid app

This is a mind focusing application.  Object is to cross off numbers within the grid in consecutive order, beginning at 1 and continuing to final number.  With this program you can build whatever’s size grid you would like.  Once you click off first number the timer begins.

 

Deck of Cards Workout

Deck of Cards Workout Card

Open this image in another window.  You will then see how this workout begins to take shape.  Using a deck of cards, minus the Jokers, you will flip the first card over and determine the suit...Hearts, Diamonds, Spades, Clubs.  Each of these, as can be seen on the image, corresponds to a specific area of exercise...abdominal, upper body, flexibility, and cardiovascular.  Using a timer, or Tabata Pro Timer app I have shown on my YouTube channel, perform exercise for 20 - 30 seconds, and then rest for 10 seconds.  During this pause, flip over the next card and determine the next exercise.

 

Sweat Deck app

Same idea as above, however, this is an app you can place on your mobile device.
