The mom behind Raising Dragons regularly shares unique and fun activity ideas for children. Recently, she published a YouTube video showing how to keep kids entertained by throwing hula hoops around the backyard. The challenge looks high-energy so not only will it wear out your kids, but it will also sneakily ensure that they’re getting some exercise.
So what’s the challenge? First, tie string or thin ropes to some hula hoops in order to create some lassos. Next, gather all the balls you have that are large enough to be caught by a hula hoop ring and place them around the yard. Then, let them have at it! Basically, your kids have to lasso the balls.
