App 4 kids exercise/movement

Recommended Posts

DS is not motivated about movement but is VERY motivated by computer games. Anything with reward points or levels that get unlocked, that sort of thing. Can anyone recommend an app which gamifies movement or exercise for kids? Like Strava but with fun games 😄

When you meet exercise goals (60mins) on the Garmin vivofit Jr you earn moves in a game on the app when you sync to a device. You then play a simple tapping game, collect gems along a trail and get clues to guess which animal is at the end of the trail.

Just dance videos on YouTube? Obviously you could buy the game too. 
It's on switch, not sure what else.

Pretty sure just dance is on most consoles. We had it on Apple TV and now on the switch. 
 

ds2 also likes doing yoga and mindfulness videos on YouTube

This is along the lines of what I want. Even better would be something that gives more rewards based on improving over previous efforts. For example, if we rode the same route every day and the app broke the route up into sections and gave different value gems based on beating previous personal records.

There’s also Pokémon Go.  My device loving 5 year old wants to walk the long way to and from school to catch Pokémons.
