5 reasons to implement a PE class with your kids:
1. Exercise builds immunity

The American Heart Association strongly recommends that children get vigorous exercise at least 60 minutes every day. With the stay at home order in place, it is definitely harder for kids to get outside to get their exercise, but here are a few tips and ideas to get your kids moving an active...and remember the more exercise they get, the better they sleep and the better their mood will be. Who doesn't want their kids to be in a better mood, especially when we are stuck in the house with them 24/7.
There are many different websites and apps that are currently offering free workouts for adults and kids. Find ways to engage your kids in these exercises and do them with them. Are your kids climbing up the walls and need an outlet to relax their body and mind...try yoga. Use one of these printable yoga routines or pick up some yoga cards decks. My favorite is the angel bear yoga deck. Have your child choose a few cards a day, a few times a day (before school, after lunch and before bed) or end with a yoga kids book at bedtime.
