Most millennials will have noticed that fashions and fads from our youth seem to be making a comeback – the nineties and noughties are no longer a distant memory as they’ve been reincarnated by the younger generation.
Well, how about combining the comeback of 90s fads with health and fitness? With the NHS setting guidelines on the amount of physical activity for children and young people, it got us thinking about how we could incorporate both of these things to fit exercise into our kids days, as well as making it fun.
Here are three ways you can use these nostalgic 90s trends to keep your kids fit, or even relive your youth and try them out yourself!
Believe it or not, roller skating has plenty of health benefits – it’s a great way of burning calories as it works your arms and legs, as well as improving your balance and agility.
If you’re looking for a fun way to stay fit, roller skating is the perfect option for the entire family. You can do it with friends on a sunny day or find a roller disco and put a smile on everyone’s faces with some colourful skates and accessories from Proline Skates. Who knew exercise could be so much fun!
Boomerang may be known as the newest Instagram craze to your kids, but how about introducing them to the real thing?
As well as being a lot of fun, it takes precision and skill to work a boomerang, so whilst your kids are getting to grips with their new toy, they’re likely to be running around and retrieving their failed attempts at throws. Plus, it’s a great way to get them outdoors and make the most of the sunny days.
Forget about the electric scooter, go old-school and buy your kids a stunt scooter. They’ve come a long way since razor scooters of the 90s and with so many available on the market now, you can choose from an affordable beginners’ scooter to a pro scooter (one for yourself perhaps!). Not only is it an easier way for your kids to get from A to B, but it’ll encourage them to be outdoors more and to learn some energetic tricks on their stunt scooters.
In fact, we’re tempted to dust off our own scootering skills – if Hugh Jackman (a.k.a. Wolverine) approves, then so do we!
So, there you go – three ways to keep your kids healthy with hobbies/fads that we remember from our own childhoods. Who knows, you might want to get involved and relive your youth too!
