YouTube Channels That Get Kids Moving

by | Feb 7, 2023 | general homeschooling, Health and P.E.

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.

Here are some of our favorite YouTube channels that get kids moving. Click on the embedded video to see a sample of what each channel offers, or click the blue title to visit their YouTube channel and browse all their videos.
