1. Beaded Jump Rope

Great jump rope for beginners. It has a durable shatterproof 1 inch plastic segmented beads over a solid, long-lasting braided nylon cord.

It's a popular jump rope for that "tick tick" clicking sound on pavement or gym floors; which actually helps with developing a jumping rhythm.

2. Trampolines

Playing and bouncing on a trampoline let's kids relieve stress effectively and safely.

Trampoline jumping also enhancing children's muscle development, stronger bones and reinforces joints. The best part is that it is very low impact on joints.

3. Punching Bags 

Boxing can help improve your child's core, can developing upper body strength and can a fun and great way to  increase your stamina.

Kids can also release their stress through a punching bag. Aside from relieving stress, they get improved bone health as well.

Learning the basics of boxing can increases your child's confidence in defending themselves in times of trouble. But overall the important takeaway is that the increase in confidence is great for child development.

4. Obstacle Course For Kids

Great way for building children's gross motor skills, balance and coordination. Pieces with textured surfaces allow children to safely balance and gain confidence while the rubbery bottom edges prevent slipping. 

5. Stepping Stones

Give kids a fun way to expend energy, improve coordination and balance, and seek to be indoor and outdoor adventures. Recommended for children ages 3-7, these stepping stones encourage children to step, climb, jump, hop and practice moving with purpose and determination from one stone to the next.

6. Wobble Balance Board

Helps kids improve balance, burn off some energy, and keep them off screens. The best part is this wobble board take up a very little foot print.
