How to create the ultimate home gym—for your kid

School-aged kids should be getting at least an hour of exercise each day, which can feel impossible to achieve in lockdown. This gear will help them get moving.

When the pandemic first hit, free weights, tension bands and Peloton bikes quickly became hot commodities—and for good reason. It didn’t take a team of experts to prove that keeping active (especially when you’re in lockdown) is not only good for your body, but also your mental health. Over the summer, the focus turned to kids with trampolines, bikes and other outdoor gear being cleared off store shelves. But with the long Canadian winter stretching out before parents, it’s getting harder to get the kids to go outdoors to be active.

Here, we’ve rounded up some of our favourite active toys—in a range of different price points—for getting your little one’s blood pumping indoors.
