The best warm up exercises for kids are easy to do, easy to teach and FUN! Games like ‘Simon Says’ work great for young kids and older kids can try progressive exercises like high knees, butt kicks, walking lunges, side shuffles and jumping jacks.  Warm ups are important to improve performance and prevent injury.

We found this fun, free printable Simon Says activity sheet at family/lifestyle blog, 730 Sage Street.
