DIY Weights at Home with Water Bottles

Age group: School Readiness (3-5 years old)

Helping children to form positive habits and a healthy mindset about exercise is so important. Help your children learn with these DIY 'weights' for them to play with.

Children might see adults working out from time to time and wonder what it is that they are doing, and what the tools are which they are using. Help them to better understand with this at-home weights activity.

It's important not to make muscle growth a focus at such a young age - which is why this learning activity should be focused on creating the 'weights' and helping children to understand different materials have different weights attached to them.
