- Have a timed race across the monkey bars
- (mom and dad can do pull ups to slow themselves down and make it a better exercise)
- Sprint to the nearest light post
- Do crab walks, duck walks, and bear crawls in sand or on grass
- Find sand and have a long jump competition
- Teach the kids to do an assisted pull up (the parents get to work out their arms lifting the kid repeatedly!)
- Do burpees or star jumps for time.
- Have a relay race using a stick as a baton
- Or go back to tradition and play catch. Make it more of a workout by including sprinting to missed balls

I have a list below of some ideas for fitness activities disguised as games!
