    By: ActivityTree

    The simplest things can sometimes motivate a child.  Something as easy as asking your child if he or she thinks she can jump 100 times or do 100 jumping jacks can secretly become a way to keep them active.  There are an endless list of activities a child can do 100 of: skip, run 100 yards, jump rope, jump on one foot, make baskets or goals, cartwheels, and on and on.  Have your child count while they are at it.  No reason they can't be exercising their mind, too.  If your child is younger, help them with their counting or use a lower age-appropriate number.
