15 Movement YouTube Channels That Will Get Your Kid Tired For Nap Time

While family walks are a great way to get some fresh air and vitamin D, sometimes kids need a little more movement. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends introducing physical activity early in a child's life to set them up for a healthy lifestyle. Not only does exercise make you feel better physically and mentally, but it can also increase self-esteem and capacity for learning.

Whether it's raining outside or you need the kids to shake their sillies out indoors because you're trying to work from home, these various movement and exercise videos for kids are here to help. From mindful yoga to dance routines, scroll through some of our favorite kids' YouTube channels and videos that encourage exercise (and sometimes learning!) so your kids can burn off their endless energy with a bit of positive screen time.
