Sport and Excercise

Sport and Excercise

Children want to move constantly. Young babies kick their legs to express joy or excitement. Older children explore the world skipping, climbing, swinging and running. Adolescents strive to test boundaries and love competitions. Every age group has different physical needs and things they like to do. Young children benefit from trying different things and spending time playing outside. Older children know their talents and will choose a particular sport.

There are many ways to get your children moving. When children are older, sport and exercise are a very good way to stay fit and enjoy the company of friends. Smaller children need a safe place to run around and explore. Take them to the woods nearby, to a playground, a park or even your own garden. In winter, there are indoor pools, skating rinks, miniature golf courses or indoor tennis courts. Ask your local administration (Gemeinde) for a list of playgrounds, sports grounds and sports clubs in your town. You can also ask about mother/child gymnastics.
