Home » Top Five Most Important Fitness Games for Kids
Physical and healthy activities are important benefits of sports involvement. Children often expend too much time watching Cartoons on TV or playing games on computers, IPAD, Xbox, Nintendo, PlayStation, you name it …  but physical sports activities and games provide leisure for exercise that can help keep kids in shape and healthy. Although there are a few games that result in a kid’s fitness at an early age.

Sometimes even a child gets tired of practicing formal activities related to their health but if we join sports exercise and games together in one activity then this would be the most preferred choice for kids to practice. It appears as a game for children but it also has hidden healthy benefits about which children are NOT aware.

Such fitness games are now becoming popular in schools, daycares and kindergartens in Canada.

Now educational sectors realized the importance of such extra-curriculum along with studies. As it keeps the kid’s minds fresh and on the other hand they never get bored from studies. At the growing age of children, parents or guardians that (includes schools) should be aware of activities necessary for proper children’s nourishment.

Here is a list of Five Most Important Fitness Games that are currently practiced in schools, kindergartens & daycares in Canada. Also, it should be preferable in every educational sector.

  1. GET ‘EM OUT OF HERE!

In this Game, we divide the children into more than one team. Give each team an area to protect, clearly marked with tape, lines or chalk drawn in the ground. Give every kid a piece of paper to wad it into a ball-shaped. On the scream of “Go” the kids throw their rolled paper or wad to the other team’s area. On the shriek of “Stop,” the kids count the numbers of wad balls on either side. The matter is to have the finical number of paper wads. Do you notice this game is beneficial in two cases? Firstly, working with the team and secondly, performing actions related to arts

  1. Run, Run Chicken

In this game, the kids run from one safe area to another, during that period one catcher comes between & yells the name of the game (aforesaid), by this he/she is actually alerting the rest of the kids run into mid-space. Anyone caught becomes a partner of the catchers for the next round, continues until all are captured and the game begins from the start. The benefit of this game is having running exercise. You see kids are enjoying capturing each other and exercise is being practiced along with games. They never realize either they are tired or not.

  1. Socks

Kindergarten, preschools children love this game and generally don’t care about the guidelines. They love the grabbing & chasing each other – Laura Richen Baugh. Anyone who wants to play fastens an old sock in the back of their coat or shirt, not in a belt loop or any place that could cause a body problem. There is one catcher who doesn’t have a sock and has to get one. For this purpose, he/she hunts others to do so.

  1. Rotten Eggs

Years ago, kids made up this game on their own. One Kid will be Rotten Egg and everyone else who intends to play tries to capture that person. If you don’t intend to play, you just finish running, and if you’re the Rotten Egg & exhausted, you cutoff and any other can tag you & game continues evenly from where it starts.

  1. Ghost in a graveyard

One kid is acting as a ghost. The rest of the kids lie in their “graves” veiling their eyes & counting to 10 or more like the ghost obscure. Once the counting is ceased, everybody starts to seek the hidden ghost. The first kid who catches the ghost shriek, “Ghost in the graveyard!” & all dispatch to their grave. If anyone gets captured while he/she is running toward his grave, lies down and hides his eyes becomes the new ghost. Physical and healthy activities are important benefits of sports involvement.
