Lots & Lots of Fitness Fun for Kids! DVD Review by Amanda Hopkins

When you live in Minnesota, you start to itch for some warm summer weather. This is true not only for mom but also for the kids in the house. I was able to sit down and watch Lots & Lots of Fitness Fun for Kids DVD from Marshall Publishing & Promotions, INC. with my youngest.

During this 30 minute DVD, your child will watch numerous other children as they get outside and play. We are guided by a cartoon whistle that tells us what the various activities are, such as t-ball, basketball, golf, soccer and the playground. We also get to play peek-a-boo, and we finish the movie off with a song. We even get to learn a little about colors when the whistle names off different colored balls.

I sat down with my three-year-old daughter, and we watched this together. This movie is recommended for ages 1-5, but at three, my daughter seemed at the older age for this. I could see this being used for the 1-2 year age as an excellent introduction to the different ways to play outside.

During the video, I engaged my daughter in conversation about what was going on. This got us talking about things like, “We should try that when the snow melts” or, “Remember how well you did that during the summer!” This made her want to get outside more.

I love watching videos with my children that get them wanting to get moving. Finding new activities and sports that look fun mean that my children will want to try them. Lots & Lots of Fitness Fun for Kids was a great video to do just that. Your child will want to get out and try some fun new things, and you will be happy knowing that they are moving and learning new skills.
