Kids like to have fun. It’s just what they do. One great way for kids to have fun is with a punching bag that is designed just for them. This can also be one of the best ways to get them up off of the couch and away from video games and television. I have two kids and I know just how difficult this can be. Kids need physical activity. They need to exercise just like me and you and getting a punching bag will give them a great workout.
Do your kids like to play rough with you? Mine do and most of the times I end up as the bag. They always seem to get me too. One little punch in the eye and then one slips by and comes crashing in where the sun doesn’t shine. OUCH! It happens and it is all in good fun.
One day I had an idea. I decided to find a bag for my kids. I was curious to see how long it would hold their attention, if it did at all. It was one of the best things I have ever purchased for my kids. They completely love it, In fact I had to get two of them to prevent any real fights from breaking out.
It is great to watch them unleash all of that pent up energy on the poor helpless punching bag. It doesn’t stand a chance. They just beat this thing senseless. They are getting a massive workout and they don’t even realize that it’s happening.
Using a punching bag has so many benefits for your children. It helps them to develop better coordination. They quickly learn how to perfectly time all of the punches and kicks. They develop better motor skills. They develop better, faster reflexes. If they are using an inflatable punching bag, they need good reflexes to dodge the bag when it comes bouncing back up. Both of my children got bopped when the bag came back up. It just made them want to punch it even more. Throwing all of those punches works their little arms. They work their legs too as they jump around the room. Let’s not forget about their balance and speed. Spending time beating the punching bag helps improve those too!
The down side to all this? Now I have two trained little fighters and when it is time to play rough, I really take a beating!
