Staying Active at our Indoor Playground in Toronto

July 15, 2016

Exercise and being active should be fun for kids, not a chore. Our dynamic indoor playground in Toronto gets kids active by thinking outside of the box. Kids can navigate and explore our expansive jungle-themed Toronto indoor playground, full of fun slides, monkey bars, crawling tunnels, trampoline, and ball pit. The vibrant environment will have your little ones up and moving. And look out for our jolly mascots—Misha the Bear, Lion, and Zebra love to dance. Dancing is one of the best ways to keep fit and benefits bodies of all ages.

Some parents have difficulty getting their kids up off the couch to get active. Not all kids are interested in sports, but that’s OK. With a creative approach and some out-of-the-box thinking, physical activity can be fun and stress-free. Here are some tips to get you started.

Have patience. It may take a while to find the right fit. All kids are unique, each one with a particular set of likes and interests. What is considered to be fun for one child may be boring to another. When brainstorming activities, give your child a variety to choose from. Keep trying new and different activities until your child finds one they are happy with and excited about doing.

Turn off the TV. Television, game consoles, and mobile devices have become a major part of a modern child’s life. Kids are being exposed to technology at a young age, with both beneficial and harmful effects. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends limiting a child’s access to technology to 2 hours per day. Be proactive about providing alternatives, whether it is visiting our great indoor playground in Toronto or taking a family walk.

Include your child’s friends. Most kids are more willing to engage in activities if their friends are there too. How many times have you heard the following: “Can I bring a friend?” If the answer is too many to count, that is absolutely normal. It is natural for kids to want to share experiences with their friends and is an indication of healthily developing social skills.
