Winter is the time of fun hops. One of the best toys we've gotten for our kids! Great inside energy outlet. Good for hitting, jumping on, kicking, throwing...and the occasional bouncing. Laughter is more prevalent than tears, which is always a good sign. I wish they made fun hops for adults! Instead, we've got exercise balls, which aren't so bad, just not quite as fun. Besides the exercises you do on them, we have also used ours to bounce on with fussy newborns. Great tip! ....anyway..
here are the hard workers doing their sit-ups:Lately, the kids just want to exercise with their balls in front of our DVD at any time of day. Don't be fooled though; their attention span for following the video: 10 minutes and declining each time that dvd plays. However, after those few minutes of bouncing bun lifts and "seeing that girl's bum" (followed by raucous mocking laughter) comes their true workout.
