Like many of you, I am constantly concerned that my kids get plenty of physical activity. Especially during winter and the heat of summer, there seem to be fewer opportunities to work out those large muscle groups. I read a review of  Nickelodeon Fit for Wii somewhere, before Christmas, and decided it would be a good gift. It turned out to be a great choice!

There are 30 games for working on core muscles, upper and lower body strength, balance, motor skill development and foot and hand coordination. My 5 year old loves the games, and my 2 1/2 year old can do some of them as well. They are designed to use with or without the WiiFit board. We have both, but play them without because it’s just easier.

In the end, as much as I like to limit screen time, the Nickelodeon Fit game is one that I’ll let my limits slide a bit because it’s such good exercise.
