YouTube Channels That Get Kids Moving
Kids have lots of energy to burn, but unfortunately, sometimes it’s just too hot, cold, or wet to get outside and play. When this happens, YouTube dance and exercise videos can be a fun addition to your homeschool day. These videos can also be used for short brain breaks throughout the day or as part of a more formal fitness or physical education program.
