Sometimes my kids don’t want to go outside and “PLAY” so I was thrilled when we discovered Mini OgoDisks. The Frisbee-like Disks are designed with kids in mind — they’re soft and easy to throw- and it gets them playing outside. Easily. With minimal equipment.
Dad teaches our 7-year old the proper technique. She’s concentrating. Thinking. Ready, set, . . .
. . . throw!!
(I’m not sure about the closed eyes but at least she’s having fun!)
The coolest thing about OgoDisks is the variety of activities you can do with them.
Here, our 10-year old catches the OgoSoft ball in an upside-down disk.
She also loves to bounce the ball on the disk just like her tennis racket and ball.
But, the 7-year old still thinks the ball is the perfect accessory for outside play.
Lovely, don’t you think?
The website says you can use the Mini OgoDisks in water and snow. We can’t wait to try!!

As the weather gets colder, I find it challenging to keep my kids active inside. We discovered that creating and doing an indoor obstacle course helped make indoor movement quite motivating. Even better, all you need are couch cushions, extra pillows, plus anything else you can find around the house. Here are a list of ideas and moves to get you started on your own indoor obstacle course. Take turns building the courses with your kids. Kids love to create the courses and race you through them!
Indoor Obstacle Course Supply Ideas
Red Rody Horse
String (criss-crossing the course)
Blocks or cushions
Not only is this great exercise, turn it into an imaginative journey over hills, rivers, and shark infested waters, and you'll add extra brain-boosting benefits.
Indoor Obstacle Course Moves
Of course, you've got to have awesome moves. Like . . .
So, what do you think? Will do this with me?
