She got a new Go-pro for Christmas so eventually with the promise of a scooter along the sea front and the promise of letting her film herself whilst doing to was enough to convince her that she should leave the confines of the house. So we wrapped her up, popped her safety helmet on and off she went to burn up some energy.
Once we were down the seafront, we also had a game of football on the pebbles, it was such a great way to blow away the cobwebs and it was such a fun time to get some exercise into my dear child. Its so good to get kids out exercising, I know this because Tilly is one of the worst people I know for having her kindle stuck in her hand! Making exercise more fun is easy with the help of onlysportsgear.com. They have lots of sports items to buy that you can use whilst spending time with your child this winter, rather than staying inside watching the Tv etc.
Football is a great way to spend some quality time exercising with the children, because it involves lots of running around, the kids don't even feel the cold. I don't know the rules but we just make it up as we go along, of course I always lose!

Its harder to get the kids out and motivated in the winter too because they (or indeed even us) don't want to be out in the cold. In the summer kids can play out for hours upon hours, in the winter, its difficult to even get Tilly to open the front door! Even just a run around the garden with them in the winter is fun and it gets us out and about too.
How do you get your kids burning off their energy in the winter?
